DC Database

1985, fifty years after the first publication by National Allied, DC undertakes its biggest endeavour yet: Crisis on Infinite Earths. This major continuity shuffle allows DC to do away with the Multiverse, which prevented a lot of team-ups and was confusing to newer readers. Marv Wolfman wrote the series, with help from Dick Giordano and art by his New Teen Titans co-creator George Pérez. It sees the death of Barry Allen and Supergirl and the creation of a singular universe.
