What Happened To Scotland In Flashpoint?

In an earlier Bleeding Cool article, I mocked Flashpoint: Lois Lane And The Resistance for portraying the United Kingdom without Scotland and Wales, just England.



Then I read Flashpoint: Wonder Woman And The Furies #3 out today… and it's all in continuity. Here is the page in question.

That's right folks, Scotland was intentionally chopped off. And so was Wales too it seems. I blame Torchwood for that last one obviously.

It turns out that it was all the fault of Terra, using her powers to defend England – and in so revealing herself to be a rather nasty little member of the English Alliance or whatever name thy are using. Defend England, let Scotland and Wales go drown… and then get everyone to refer to England as the United Kingdom.
