About Flashpoint, written by Geoff Johns:
Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an Elseworlds. This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it? It’s a place where America’s last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of The Outsider, The Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet altered faces! It’s a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the time line!

This is a breaking news story and more details will follow.
