Flash DC Logo

This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.

In an effort to save his mother's life from the Reverse-Flash, Barry Allen unknowingly changes reality, creating a new world in which his friends' lives are drastically different. [1]

In this timeline Joe Chill shoots and kills a young Bruce Wayne, rather than his parents.[2] Thomas Wayne seeks out justice to get revenge for his son. He finds Joe Chill and attempts to inject him with a drug, presumably to abduct him and torture him, but instead beats him to death with his bare hands.[3] Thomas places Joe Chill's gun in a trophy case as a reminder in the Batcave.[4]
