Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox animated movie
When time travel allows a past wrong to be righted for Flash and his family, the event’s temporal ripples prove disastrous, creating a fractured, alternate reality where the Justice League never formed, and even Superman is nowhere to be found. Amidst a new world being ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman’s Amazons and Aquaman’s Atlanteans, Flash must team with a grittier, more violent Batman and government agent Cyborg to restore the continuity of Flash’s original timeline.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
In between the running, jumping, hollering, and general mayhem that occurs in the Major Spoilers HQ when The Boys (aka Stephen’s children) are playing, there is a considerable amount of time spent playing video games.  While some of us have little time to sit down in front of the gaming console, others spend far too much time pressing up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start.  Which brings us to this week’s moment of deep soul searching.

How many hours a week do you play video games?
