Did You Know?


The Trickster of Earth Three resembles the version of the character from The Flash (1990), in which he was also portrayed by Mark Hamill. See more »


The story begins in the Indus Valley of 2012 at a desert campsite with Julian writing in his journal that it's been 6 months since he "arrived here in India". Although the country was named after the river, since the Partition of India in 1947 nearly all of the Indus flows through Pakistan; the only exceptions being the upper reaches of the river in India (and China) which are very high up in the Himalayas.

Brahma Astra misquoted
7 December 2016 | by adithyakoundinyaSee all my reviews

I understand that The Flash is a fictional story and I should not take it seriously. But, The term Brahma Astra is a very common word in India and any kid knows its not a philosopher stone or a sorcerer's stone.

Even fictional stories can be made close to reality by not wrongly quoting meaning of words from the history.

There are quite good number of people who follow The Flash, Arrow and Super Girl in India. It sounds funny and not serious when the word "Brahma Astra" otherwise called "philosopher stone"

Brahma = "Almighty God" Astra = "Weapon"

Brahma Astra = "Gods Weapon that destroys evil"
