2) THE GOLDEN AGE

the-golden-age
An anomaly among Elseworlds, if only because part of its story is treated as canonical in the mainstream DCU afterwards; specifically, Ted “Starman” Knight’s emotional breakdown after creating the atomic bomb.  It’s a cracking yarn that takes one of the oldest tropes in the book (I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t read the book, but suffice to say that Dyna-Man is the stuff of pulp nightmares) and weaves a tense and realistic tale around it.  It also helps to fill in some of the decades between the Justice Society and the Justice League and features a HUGE and eclectic cast, including heroes whom DC owns that have never appeared in any other DC Comics…  #Paradox

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
