"A suggestion then, Flash—Try not to bleed." —Hawkman
SUMMARY: Familiar fairy tales spring to life one stormy
afternoon as an enormous beanstalk sprouts in the center of Keystone
City and grows high into the gathering green clouds. It's then that
Cliff, the cocky college student who has been trying to spark a
relationship with Linda, reveals himself as the villainous Brother Grimm
in disguise! The evil king remains utterly obsessed with replacing the
scarlet speedster. Now, he's taken the Flash's bride to serve as his
princess and is determined to conquer Keystone City. As the Flash
fends-off a pack of fire-breathing dragons he finds a familiar hero
unexpectedly fighting by his side. The winged-warrior Hawkman has
witnessed the chaos in Keystone, and he's prepared to join the fight.
Together, the superheroes climb the beanstalk to reach the world of
Eastwind, where they must battle magic and monsters to save Linda from
the clutches of her kidnapper.
