  • Catharsis Factor: Face it, you cheered when Eobard Thawne, first-class murderous bastard and all around petty asshole, got vaporized by Doctor Manhattan.

  • Continuity Lockout:
    • If you haven't read Flashpoint or DC Universe: Rebirth #1 and don't have at least a passing knowledge of Watchmen and the general DC Universe, good luck following this story.

  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Jay Garrick, as always. But even more so because he will likely serve as a vehicle for the Justice Society's return.
    • Thomas Wayne, and his (brief) relationship with an adult Bruce.
  • Just Here for Godzilla:
    • Some people have absolutely no interest in the wider DC Universe and are just here for the Watchmen stuff.
