The Flash #22 The Button Finale! The Dark Knight & The Fastest Man Alive teamed up to solve a mystery with cosmic consequences for the DC Universe.

Will Bruce and Barry learn who could destroy the DC Universe and why? Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter give fans the final chapter of this powerful crossover of a mystery that began with the return of Wally West, ties to Flashpoint and could end with a impossibly powerful enemy’s attack.
