Legacy of DC: Past, Present, and Future

After a brief interaction and few words in another thread, WW’84 Critique & Discussion, I have decided to post this thread to discuss the past, present, and future of DC. DC has a history , a generational nature, and a legacy that runs through the fabric of space and time of many people who have grown up with it through the years and who have taught and passed the stories from grandparent to parent to child to grandchild, etc. What are your thoughts of the past, present, and future of the Legacy of DC?
