New DC Continuity Timeline

Bleeding Cool and other sites are displaying blurry version of a new DC Continuity Timeline

Has anybody a clearer version or better eyesight to read it.

In Generation 1, Basically Wonder Wonder now is the oldest superhero and is instrumental in creating the
Justice Society of America.

Generation 2 starts with Superman

Generation.3 is Crisis, which I guesss means the history could be changed.

Generation 4 is the Current DC Timeline


That’s interesting. I look forward to seeing the official version.

I wonder if, with Wonder Woman, if it will be that she was here in WWII, then left and came back much later. Like in the movies.

Also same thing in TV series.

Maybe she meets Steve Trevor only in the present day.

Thanks TurokSonofStone1950, those BC photos are all blurry even when you expand them. I hope someone publishes that board in a way that can be read.

Your posting of their notes is much appreciated! It’ll be great if DC really sticks to this.


@Don el

You are welcome.

It is nice to see DC History in Summary Form


There are 4 eras

1 for 25 years
2 for 15 years
3 for 15 years
4 for 05 years

That is 60 years, but from 1938 is more than 80

Assuming 1938 and World War II are actual dates.

Currenty DC date is 1998 or 1999

Also if dont ignore first 25 years, Superman is 60 and Lois near that age?

Batman Year One was 35 years ago. How old is Batman?

Or is just what is canon in DC Comic History?

Or does everybody on DC Earth both age very slowly when an adult and age rather quickly when a child?


Thanks for the summary.

This is going to be interesting. If aging is introduced, the youngsters like Billy Batson are going to lose that element fast. The young ones have an interesting journey ahead of them though.

It’s going to be worse for those already adults. Believe me - aging takes it toll quickly in the middle ages. Ain’t going to be jumping the same rooftops 10 years later. :smiley:



I think the aging rate will need to be dealt with more carefully if they do this.

I saw Bendis mention that DC Millennium Supergirl President was 50 years in the future. Considering how old the artist made her look, either Kryptonians age the same rate as humans or she spent a good chunk of her life aging in another time (with the Legion?)


More on timeline

Some xxxx were filled in

Seems like DC current year IS
1999, because only 60 of 80 years covered

I wish that the First Generation did not mention

Kal el arriving on Earth the same year as Krypton exploding in Year One

And the Death of the Waynes

Since only 60 out of 80 years are explored. That leaves twenty years missing.

In those twenty years, the voyage from Krypton could have taken much longer like Man of Steel with John Bryne and TV Supergirl.

And the Waynes could have murdered much later.

Still it is 35 years since All the major DC heroes, except for Wonder Woman, started their careers, making them at least 53 in this timeline. And Batman had to go all over the world to gain his skills, so he did not start being Batman at age 18.

There is talk in Bleeding Cool that Jon will replace Kal el as Superman after he ages in the future with the Legion of Super Heroes.

Maybe the same time as Batman is replaced with a black version.

The New Timeline may be used as an excuse that Batman and Superman are too old.

But the timeline shows Flash and the others as the same age as Batman and Superman.

“No Man’s Land, Cassandra Cain debuts as Batgirl”. I noticed they mention Steph as Robin, but not Spoiler. I’m betting that’s redacted for now.
This is a good start. Let’s see if they follow through properly. It still needs some kind explanation in the comics, and I’m no less skeptical of DC’s leadership after this announcement than I was before.
