The date for the big DC event has been set for May 2011, and as a final teaser for the week, DC Comics released the following image revealing the characters tied to each of teaser images from yesterday.

As we speculated, this does look like a company wide event with the Flash at the center. As with any event like this (Final Crisis, Zero Hour, Crisis on Infinite Earths) there a good chance that everything we’ve endured these last couple of years.  Will Batman, Inc. be undone? Will Superman stop walking around?  Will Wonder Wonder get her Spankx back?

DC Comics promises more information each week leading to the event, but now we know the date (May 2011), the writer (Geoff Johns), and the artist (Andy Kubert).  Now it’s time for you to get your rage on, or your praise on until the big day arrives.

    I’m betting the farm that nerd rage will be unleashed AFTER Flashpoint when everyone realizes that nothing at all will change.

    No nerd rage at the moment. I will say that I like the character logos. They’d make some really kick-ass pins for convention season. I love that Wonder Woman one.

    (And if this is really sucessful, making metal ones with precious gems wouldn’t be bad either.)

      Batman – Ruby
      Wonder Woman – Garnet
      Aquaman – Aquamarine
      Flash – Diamond? or Cubic Zarconia?

      When I first saw the images, I thought they were pins. They really would make nice promotional or collectible pins for cons or other giveaways, I agree.

    Batman = red = rage?
    WW = violet = sapphire/love?
    Aquaman = blue = hope?
    Flash = white = Life?

      It could be questioning his wedding ring, his costume ring, or why he isn’t wearing a white lantern ring…

    Whatever the event is, it’s impact was/will be big enough that even 1,000 years later people are still curious about it.
