If you think about, in most comics most super heroes like Superman, Batman or Spider-man are in their 20's or 30's. If we assume most of the experienced ones have 10 to 15 years working as a cape based on their age and that the comic is taking place in the current year we can also assume Superman or Batman wasn't a thing in the DC universe back in 2007 or so and only starting getting famous around 2010's.

Crazy to think about that, normally they "always existed" in the universe or we only get their origin stories that, but is weirdly canon superman wasn't really around that long ago from their perspective and one day a ton of capes starting appearing out of nowhere and alien invasions, gods and multiverse crisis event. Wish there was a comic that explored that.

Yeah, you have the Justice Society of America and alikes but also there is this spam of 50 years of nothing happening. What are the current DC or Marvel 90's heroes

    Why does 1940 Superman look like a pasty out-of-shape loser

    I would love a Ultimate version of the DC Universe. But it starts set in 1978. Time progression flows at a rate of three years publishing to one year of time advancement. Three rules.

    1. Dead is dead.
    2. No time travel.
    3. No alternate universes.

      That would really neat. It also would be cool as kinda period pieces or how superheroes would play in storical events and how the world would change with their interference. Animosity towards capes could be more realistic or government interference.

      I think the big ones start appearing around the early 2000's and late 90's and after that we could have characters like Terry from batman beyond making their appearances with a completed morphed world.

      This is a great idea but only if they xan guarantee that a writer will stay on the project for a set period of time to allow their vision to become unchanged, otherwise you'd get a bunch of new writers retconning shit that they don't like in the most asinine ways possible.

    To be fair. Kansas hasn't really changed since Superman conception. So he's more timeless than batman's origin story.

    I'm doing a rewatch of STAS and I'm really curious how old Superman is. He's always been written as eternally 30, and the first episode of the show is his origin. Does it take place at the same time as the modern BTAS stories? Because when BTAS started, Bruce had already been Batman for 10 years judging by Robin being a college student, so he's roughly 35. Supermans pilot skips straight from high school to him being a reporter in Metropolis. Did he not settle down for a decade, or is he just younger than I think?

    I guess what I'm getting it is that it's weird that in the DCAU Superman doesn't come onto the scene until a decade after Batman, but they're portrayed as the same age.

      There's a theme in a lot of Superman adaptations where he basically spends his 20's learning or wandering before emerging as Superman as a 30 year old. Like in Superman the Movie, Clark spends 10 years in the Fortress before leaving.

      The show has its own issues. Metallo stayed in a hospital for a year before Lex reached out. And the first Myxlspitnik episode took place over at least a year.

      It's funny you say since it's more or less become the standard interpretation of Batman and Superman's ages and careers.
      Problem is that Batman's training requires you to shave a decade or so from his timeline. Even if you assume he started his journey as a teen, that still puts Batman's debut in his mid 20s. Add an extra decade to account for Robin and you have a Batman pushing 40 by the time he joins the Justice League.
      All Superman needs is 5 or so years after he leaves Smallville to account for his journalism degree. Or you lock him up in the Fortress of Solitude for 10 years like the Donner movie did.

        This is why for the longest time Dick was treated like a younger brother to Dick's older brother-why he was his ward, not adopted son.

        That's the timeline for the DCAU, but in the comics Batman joins the league when Dick is still a kid.

        I always assumed the Mxy episode was spread out over the course of a season. Like in-between other episodes in season 2 he would pop up

    That actually Lines up with the New 52 timeline which states batman appeared 5 years before the start of the relaunch.

    That's how it works in Marvel, but it think it's a little more complicated in DC.
    Also, don't think about it too hard; there's always inconsistent shit like young characters growing up a different rates.

    I wonder if the US government will one day fall, but the Big 2 will keep going. Keeping up the sliding timescale facade is going to be a bitch then.
