Default Here's a fun thought I just had about DC reboots...

It just occurred to me that in all the events DC had that resulted in their universe/multiverse being rebooted to a large degree....the events that led to the reboot or the reboot themselves were the fault of the HEROES, not the villains.

Hear me out:

1) CoIE - Pariah (kind of a hero) makes the Anti-monitor aware of the multiverse sending him on his spree of destruction.
2) Zero Hour - Hal wants to rebuild the universe after Coast City goes boom. Ultimately he fails and Damage ends up kick starting it. That's TWO heroes right there.
3) Infinite Crisis - Superboy-Prime PUNCH!!
4) Flashpoint - Barry missed him Mom, made the universe pay for it (seriously...how is Barry still a HERO????)
5) Convergence - A Superman, A Supergirl, Hal and Barry go back and re-re--reboot by preventing CoIE from being what it was in point 1. Meaning, Hal and Barry both have two reboots under their belts. They are better at destroying universes than Darkseid!

Don't forget that Pandora also threw a little whammy into the end of Flashpoint.

However, point taken that because Barry missed mommy ALL OF HISTORY WAS ALTERED RESULTING IN MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF DEATHS AND THE OBLITERATION OF AN ENTIRE CONTINENT.

Still 'n all, I do like Barry.

Well because of Pariah, Infinite minus five UNIVERSES were destroyed. So you know, THAT'S a body count right there.

To be fair he was punished by being whiny in every comic book he appeared in.

Or wait...were WE being punished? Bit of a toss up there.
