Flashpoint: Casino Bat Action Figure

Okay, so.. Flashpoint is coming. It's DC's big event this year, and it basically centers around Professor Zoom going back and changing a lot of key factors in the DC Universe, and one of the teasers we got earlier on was "He spends his days running Wayne Casinos." Which I thought, cool, y'know.. I'm down for some re-imagining of Bruce Wayne, and I like the idea of not having him as Batman, then I saw this..

Now, this looks like some crazy alteration to the 90's Morrison JLA run, which wasn't bad at all, actually, but.. seriously, wtf is this? How is he Batman if he's running a casino? I liked the idea of stopping his parents because it would have given room to become Jack Bauer, but this is ridiculous.

With the Kubert art, hopefully it will look a lot better, and I don't know if it's just the action figure that looks bad, but the Cyborg, Flash, and Wonder Woman action figures look perfectly fine, so I'm not holding out hope. Honestly, the Flashpoint Wonder Woman action figures is one of the best I've ever seen.

I was really looking forward to Flashpoint, and I still am, but this picture certainly put a little damper on my excitement.
