* BrokenBase:
** ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''- it was either the best thing to happen to the DCU or the worst.
** And more recently, the ''ComicBook/New52'' Reboot for largely the same reasons.
* GenerationalSaga, just modified in the Post-Crisis continuity:
** The JSA characters, i.e. the first Franchise/GreenLantern (Alan Scott) and Franchise/TheFlash (Jay Garrick) being the first generation.
** They were followed by the next generation of superheroes such as Franchise/{{Superman}} Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/WonderWoman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), The Flash (Barry Allen), ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, ComicBook/MartianManhunter, ComicBook/GreenArrow...
** Followed in turn by the generation of their sidekicks: ComicBook/{{Robin}} (Dick Grayson), ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} (Kara Zor-El), ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} (Barbara Gordon), ComicBook/WonderGirl (Donna Troy), Kid Flash (Wally West), Aqualad, Speedy, et cetera.
