We don't need this page. We already have pages for the Dark Age and Modern Age and they both explian better and in far more detail then this one.

Yes, but they fail to cover the scholarly merging of both periods that is favored by some comic book analysis that is represented here as an alternate. Also, its not less detailed, its emphasizing different things to support the thesis more clearly. That thesis being "The Iron Age is defined by Retcons, Alternate Universes, Crisis Crossovers, and Reboots" wherein the thesis of Dark Age was "Darkier and Edgier meets Dork Age" and the thesis of Modern Age was "Reconstruction." As well, because those two pages exist and this one is not a replacement but an alternate viewpoint, they needn't be as detailed.

However, you did sum up my fears of my page being huffed, so thanks for that. :P

A distinct problem is that the source material of this art5icle does not reflect that, rather it's a copypasta of both articles that should be edited within that thesis.

Personally I like the Iron Age as the name of the Dark Age as it plays better to the metal terms used in the other names.

I perfer the name Iron Age, but the Dark Age and Modern Age articles are better written. This is just Copypasta.
