I have a sort of timeline for the golden age. I just need to polish it.
Golden age timeline
Green Lantern (1940-1951)
Doctor Fate (1940-1944)
Doctor Midnite (1941-1951)
Johnny Thunder (1941-1948)
Mister Terrific (1942-1951)
Black Canary (1947-1951)
I see you have included “Return of Bruce Wayne”. So we’re not placing Bruce Waynes time skips from historic times, 16th century, 18th century, 19th century, etc? You’re just tracking the story from which it originates?
I seem to remember johnny thunder and terry sloane were not active in the 1951 justice society.
what does BBM and ABM mean ?
an props for attempting to create a timeline, reading orders are a mess, especially if something has a tie-in or a to be continued in…
also I didn’t realize cannon reading from just random stories, such as Action Comics Superman vs just Superman, I had those two confused and an employee at my LCS clued me in on that.
it is a deep rabbit hole. one which DC shakes up now and then with Infinite crisis , Dark Crisis, ( how many crises have there been so far ?), but tis fun! Death Metal ! ( is Death Metal, Cannon ? I got no clue if it is, I think it should be if it isn’t)

Sorry it has taken so long to answer some of these questions, I had a draft I did not want to lose.
Yes, that is right.
Thanks for your feedback I will look into that.
Before Batman, After Batman
Thank you, I will need help. That is the reason for this thread, any advice or correction (if said respectfully) will be appreciated.
I believe it is but it is so hard to keep track of all that sometimes.
Looks like you are right about Johnny. I will change that. Thanks. This came from a Wikipedia article (so if someone has a credible source that refutes this one let me know) about Mister Terrific
Mister Terrific became a reserve member of the Justice Society of America, taking part in two of their chronicled 1940s adventures. He also was a full-fledged member of the All-Star Squadron and assisted both teams on several more occasions throughout the remaining decade, retiring along with his peers in 1951.
Hope that helps and thanks again about Johnny.
wikipedia is sometimes wrong. The 1951 justice society had 7 members: wonder woman, jay garrick, alan scott, hawkman, al pratt, dr mid-nite, black canary. The inactive justice society members maybe can be interpreted as reserve members up to 1951, which explains the wording from wikipedia about these inactive justice society members who were not in the 1951 justice society.
That is a golden age timeline not a JSA timeline. Although they would be very similar.
In comics publication history, the 1951 all star comics (justice society title) was the last place to see some of these golden age heroes who no longer had solo features. There are plenty of flashback stories to the golden age altho can be hard to tell in what years these take place.
Right, I still need to make reading orders for all the characters. If you like you can do it.
internet already has many sites dedicated to the golden age justice society with reading orders.

What timelines/reading orders would you guys like to see? I’m done with the ones I already had and need more to do.
How about a crisis timeline? All the hard/soft resets in the DCU? Crisis on Infinite Earths, Flashpoint, etc.?
Ill get working on that after I finish my homework.
@Cradle2theGabe here you go!
7 ABM: Crisis on Earth One, Crisis on Earth Three
10 ABM: Crisis on Infinite Earths
14 ABM: Zero Hour - Crisis in Time
16 ABM: Identity Crisis
17 ABM: Infinite Crisis
20 ABM: Blackest Night Saga
22 ABM: Flashpoint
25 ABM: Convergence
26 ABM: Rebirth
Rebirth will be the end of the timeline but here is a chronological list of the other Crisis’s.
- Dark Knights Metal
- Doomsday Clock
- Heroes in Crisis
- Dark Knights D**** Metal
- Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths
Thanks! Impressive! Identity Crisis and Heroes in Crisis are basically just crisis in name only right? Nothing really got reset continuity wise?
From what I have read the JL get their mind wiped at the end of Identity Crisis. I have no clue about anything Heroes in Crisis accept that everyone hated it (except @Jurisdiction I think), I put it on because I saw it on one or two of the list I used to create the list.
