Bringing Back the Justice League of America – the Second Generation of the New DC Comics Timeline

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.

Exclusive: The Full DC Comics New Continuity Timeline - Including Crisis, New 52, Rebirth and Doomsday Clock - As Shown at #NYCC

And we got a closer look at each of the Generations. Such as Generation 1, representing the first twenty-five years. We just updated our best read of that. Now it’s time for Generation 2, the following fifteen years.

Our First Look at the New DC Comics Continuity Timeline - Including Doomsday Clock, JSA and Legion

This is what we have so far for Generation 2. Feel free to help fill in some of our ‘xxx’ spots and tell us what we got wrong. An update will no doubt follow as it did this morning for Generation 1. I find sneaking up on some of the blurred phrases out of the corner of my eye works… feel free to contact us directly, or post the comments below.

And yes, looks like we are back to having a Justice League Of America, no longer juts a Justice League…
