Yesterday, Bleeding Cool put up the new DC Universe Timeline shown off at the DC Nation panel at New York Comic Con. It caused quite a fuss. Especially at DC Comics who didn’t realise this might happen quite so fast, I’m told. Anyway.
And we got a closer look at each of the Generations. Such as Generation 1, representing the first twenty-five years. Then Generation 2, the following fifteen years. Generation 3, the following fifteen years after that. And now Generation 4. The last before 5G.
Lots of detail – including that Booster Gold knows what’s going on with this new timeline. And that Jonathan Kent no loner aged when he went on a trip with Jor-El, instead he aged when he went to the future with the Legion Of Super-Heroes. Unless of course he is going to age even more…
