The Flashpoint storyline is a crossover story arc that was featured back in 2011 and was written by Geof Johns, who now works as an executive producer on The Flash. The storyline introduces an alternate universe where only Barry is aware of the differences between this new timeline and the regular timeline we’ve all been following.
In the end, the events of the Flashpoint are a huge game changer for the story, so we’re definitely looking forward to seeing what kind of changes are in store for all of our favorite Flash characters now that we know the Flashpoint is officially happening.
