As of this writing, we know the post-Flashpoint fates of basically all the A-list and high B-list heroes of TheDCU... except one. Wally West, Flash III, is conspicuously absent from all interviews and press releases. Perhaps this is because they don't want to give out any spoilers, and perhaps that spoiler is that he's going to die. He'll probably go out in a HeroicSacrifice akin to Barry's in ''Crisis'', and there will be [[InternetBackdraft wank]]. Even if he dies a FoeTossingCharge against fifty Anti-Monitors, oh, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis there. Will. Be. Wank.]]

** There's a likelihood that either New Genesis and Apokolips managed to keep clear from the Blackest Night, or it may have got one of them or even both. And now with [[spoiler:Abin Sur becoming the White Entity's champion after being discharged from the Green Lantern Corps essentially for [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight trying to help Earth]], he might have started working to take Nekron down - though, in comparison to the main universe's ''BlackestNight'', that's some work he got ahead of him.]]

[[WMG: New Earth still exists, it's just missing a Flash.]]
When Barry tried to go back in time, he somehow accidentally went to a different dimension (Flashpoint) instead. Maybe his mind wandered, maybe Zoom travelling in time threw him off. When he tried to restore time, same thing happened, he popped over to Nu52 (maybe with some help from Pandora), but New Earth is still right where he left it.

Fortunately for them, they're in a part of Canada that the former USA doesn't even bother with. So it's possible that they formed a society that is a nice place to live.

[[WMG: Flashpoint will end up resolving TheBorder.]]
Think about it. Both series are openly set in {{Toronto}}, and TheBorder ended amid a hanging BolivianArmyCliffhanger with several ICS agents pinned down in a building somewhere near the Port Lands district. Both series have had several actors guest-star on the other. Characters [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Mike Kessler]] and [[TheBigGuy Sam Braddock]] are each stated to be past members of JTF2; seeing [[EnsembleDarkhorse Spike]] and [[PlayfulHacker Slade]] interact would be [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]]; and the mix of the rest of the two casts could produce some awesome results. Hey, if the CBC wouldn't let TheBorder have an ending, perhaps CTV could ...

* I am not versed enough in the New Gods to speculate on them. As for for the Endless this is likely just Tuesday. In the Sandman series we see two parallel universes indirectly: the story about Prez and the cats' dream. In ActionComics Death meets Lex Luthor while he is trying to study Black Lantern energy. Her response to to the whole Black Lantern event? Eh, some overtime. People always are dying. It is a little strange undead are killing extra people, but several times more than that would have died naturally on Earth alone even without the Black Lanterns. People came back from the dead? Eh, they'll die again :). Eternal Bliss given to the universe with the halting of all death? Ahh, so this is what a vacation feels like. Oops, death is happening again, back to work. I think some of the Endless might get worked up a bit, but in the grand scheme it is just an annoyance.
