    Default History of the DC Universe (Update 2020!)

    Since the official history of the DC universe looks like it’s going to take a little longer to get straightened out thanks to the latest corporate reshuffle, here’s my own fully illustrated version, freshly updated and tweaked for your viewing pleasure. It’s an attempt at chronicling the entire publishing history of the DCU across all continuities, spanning all media from the comics, TV, and movies, as if it was all one continuous story.



    These images give you the broad overview of how the timeline works in terms of the Trinity. For the more detailed breakdown, I will link to the Google Docs for each era. Feel free to offer suggestions or tweaks. I use this history for my more superhero-obsessed students, so any ideas for improvements are always welcome. Thanks.

    A beautiful collage of iconic poses! They are also perfectly spaced so as to allow each character to be viewed.

    Excellent work! Thank you.

    I've updated the Modern Age to reflect current events, but I'm not sure I (or anyone else) really understands exactly what is going on with the whole Leviathan, Doomsday Clock, Perpetua, and Death Metal stuff. However, I have done my best to sum it all up to the best of my understanding.

    Here’s the latest revision for the upcoming Generation One section, which will have to wait until DC releases it with whatever post-Didio alternations they’ve made.

    Updated the 1990s section to include the fun DeMatties & Gibson Mister Miracle in the suburbs series. I had completely forgotten about it, but it is certainly worthy of being included as part of their history.

    This was a pretty fun time of the DCU actually.

    Thanks. I think having the original Black Canary not only be a woman rejected by the Gotham Police Academy but also a woman of color in the '40s adds another layer of depth to the character.

    This is a preview of my next little project. I am going to take a Metaverse approach to the DCAU, beginning with the Fleischer Superman cartoon to Super Friends and Batman TAS into the Multiverse of wildly diverse cartoons We have today.
