  1. [1]COLLIN COLSHER: 1986 brings us The Crisis on Infinite Earths, a multiverse-shattering cosmic event that serves to end the Silver/Bronze Age timeline. But shortly after Crisis #1 and before the epic eleven issue finale, another cosmic event called Convergence happens in the blink of an eye. While the inclusion of Crisis on this quick list is obvious and necessary, Convergence is worth mentioning as well because it features Earth-1 Batman. Although, thanks to how things play out (thanks to the publication of 2017’s “Superman Reborn” arc), we should regard it as something that happens outside of normal space-time that is then basically erased from having ever happened at all. The following is a timeline with synopses for Convergence.

    –REFERENCE: In Convergence #0-1. The über Brainiac “collects” Gotham City, literally digging it up and putting an impenetrable energy dome around it mere moments after The Crisis on Infinite Earths begins. Gotham is placed, along with other stolen cities from alternate chronologies, onto the sentient planet Telos, who exists outside of time and space. Besides Batman and his Bat-Family, several other non-Gothamites, including members of the the JLA, Flash (Barry Allen, who had been visiting Gotham from his 30th century home), Superman, Supergirl, and Swamp Thing, are present in Gotham at the time of its “collection.” (Brainiac, or possibly someone else, was able to cause a large number of heroes to gather at one spot before the dome fell, thus ensuring a “good catch.” Different lures are used for different cities.) Brainiac and Telos use special tech to depower any metahumans under the domes they collect. No one under the dome will have any idea how or why they have come to be prisoners. Nor will they even realize their city has been removed from a dead timeline and taken to an interdimensional planet.

    –REFERENCE: In Convergence #0-1 and Convergence: Batman and the Outsiders #1. Twelve hours after Gotham is stolen away by Brainiac, Batman is able to determine that there is no way out. Beyond that, Batman cannot ascertain who has domed-off Gotham, nor where the city has been taken. Batman (along with everyone else) will live trapped under the dome for the next year. Telos will provide energy and limited resources to the “collected” Gotham. Despite the new status quo, Batman begins a routine patrol of the streets of Gotham with the support of his Outsiders and the GCPD. Without her powers, Halo slips into a coma. Batman’s protection of the domed city will continue for the next calendar year.

    –REFERENCE: In Convergence: Adventures of Superman #1. Batman teaches Supergirl a special dive-bomb double-punch technique.

    –Convergence: Batman and the Outsiders #1 Part 1
    It’s been exactly 364 days since Gotham was domed-up and removed from its timeline. Commissioner Gordon meets with Batman to discuss the restlessness of the citizens. A frustrated Batman then chats with Alfred, who speaks about how everyone in Gotham is miserable except for Metamorpho, who is happily cured of his powers.

    –Convergence: The Flash #1
    It’s been exactly one year (365 days) since Gotham was domed-up and removed from its timeline. Barry Allen, now a GCPD cop, meets with Bruce for lunch. Barry seems defeated by all that has happened, but Bruce remains stalwart in his hope that they will escape.

    –Convergence: Batman and the Outsiders #1 Part 2
    Shortly after having lunch with Barry Allen, Bruce suits-up in his Batman costume, but takes a power nap in preparation for the afternoon’s patrol. Batman’s snooze is interrupted by a towering voice that thunders through the entire dome. Telos has taken initiative and decided to start a fighting tournament that includes all of the captured domed cities. (Brainiac was defeated, as seen in The New 52: Futures End, while attempting to collect another city, thus giving the abandoned Telos free reign to carry on his master’s mission as he sees fit.) All of the domes on Telos are lifted, all powers are re-granted, and Telos himself declares that only being the last warrior standing will spare destruction for one’s respective city. (Telos’s declaration is also shown in Convergence #1.) No sooner has Gotham’s dome been deactivated than OMAC (mind-controlled by Godmother) and a horde of disfigured mutants from the alternate “Earth-AD” future timeline storm into the city looking to kill everyone in sight.

    –Convergence: Batman and the Outsiders #2
    Batman assembles his Outsiders to defeat the Godmother-controlled OMAC and a bunch of disfigured mutants from the alternate “Earth-AD.” Afterward, Modern Age Deimos, having wrenched control of Telos away from the sentient planet, appears in the sky (as also seen in Convergence #5).

    –Convergence #6-7
    Deimos (from Modern Age Skartaris), having bested Telos and taken control of him and his inhabitants, pilots Telos through the Bleed and into New 52 Universe-0, an act which immediately registers an alarm with the New 52’s Justice League United. New 52 Martian Manhunter quickly alerts the New 52 Justice League. New 52 Superman assembles a task force which stands at attention as Telos comes into full view in deep space of New 52 Universe-0. On Telos, a grand battle between those allied with Deimos versus a conglomerate of heroes has begun. After scaring off the pre-Zero Hour Extremists, a bunch of displaced heroes from the Modern Age and from the New 52 Earth-2 unite under the leadership of Modern Age Earth-0 Superman (pre-Flashpoint Clark Kent) and New 52 Earth-2 Superman (Val-Zod). New 52 Earth-2 Flash (Jay Garrick) meets Barry Allen. With the encouragement of Modern Age Superman, New 52 Earth-2 Dick Grayson appeals to Telos’ humanity and brokers a peace with him. Telos assembles an army of heroes from various previously deleted chronologies (including timelines from Silver Age Earth-1, Silver Age Earth-4, pre-Flashpoint Earth-0, Silver Age 30th century, and more). This gaggle of warriors, including the pre-Crisis Silver Age Batman, attacks Deimos head-on. But Deimos already has an army of villains from various alternate chronologies (including timelines from Flashpoint, Kingdom Come, pre-Zero Hour Angor, Silver Age Earth-3, and more) at his disposal. A burst of energy erupts from Telos, scaring New 52 Earth-0’s heroes out of their wits. On Telos, the battle rages on as Telos himself battles Deimos. Yolanda Montez (of New 52 Earth-2) tells everyone that Deimos wants to steal everyone’s power by killing them all, including the villains too. This news causes the villains to join with the heroes to fight against Deimos. The pre-Zero Hour Parallax Hal Jordan swiftly executes Deimos. Unfortunately, this act releases all of the time-energy that Deimos has pilfered. A flash of electric red lightning spiderwebs through the multiverse as reality begins to crack and literally die.

    –REFERENCE: In Convergence #8. Brainiac regains control of Telos, stops the destruction, and sends all the time displaced captives from each domed city back to the moment right before each was dug up and lifted out of its timeline. All memories and lived experiences of the year under the dome are erased. From the perspective of our Silver/Bronze Age Earth-1 Batman, it’s like Convergence never even happens.

    –NOTE: Superman: Lois & Clark #1 tells us that several heroes (including Silver Age Barry Allen and Silver Age Supergirl) travel from Convergence #8 to fight in the original Crisis, significantly altering events to such an extent that the entire archived/defunct Silver Age timeline is completely erased. These characters then go on to live in the New 52 for years until the publication of “Superman Reborn,” which not only rebooted the New 52 into the New Age, but served as a coda to Convergence, tying up its loose ends, fixing its narrative conundrums, and undoing any screwing-around-with the original Crisis, thus restoring the archived/defunct Silver Age timeline to its status-quo. Barry Allen and Supergirl arrive (with their experiences and memories of Convergence and living in the New 52 erased) back at this point on the timeline, just in time for the Crisis.

    Hi

  2. Angus Livingstone says:

    Hi there–love the site! Just wondering…Will the Silver Age year-by-year accounts be updated any further, or is this quick list the extent of Silver Age updates for the foreseeable future?

    Thanks again–this site is fantastic.

    • The Silver Age Quick List is a work in progress. Hopefully it won’t change TOO much, but I’m sure there will be changes to come. At the moment, my focus is on completing the Silver/Bronze Age timeline and fixing the confusing New Age timeline. Both of these processes might take a while. Feel free to email me with any specific questions in the meantime!

      And thanks for the love!
