Change can be a good thing. It brings growth. Expansion. Understanding. And appreciation for what came before. But change can also bring fear. Anger. Darkness.
After the continuity altering effects of The Crisis on Infinite Earths, The DCU enjoyed a period of peace and reconstruction. But that was all about to change.
Invasions. Betrayals. Exile. Disbanding’s. War. And Murder. These are just a few of the perils the DCU faced in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Join in as we begin to travel down a road of change that will set the stage for a series of unthinkable events in our latest episode of Understanding DC Comics Continuity: The Dark Years Part 1!

Nicholas J. Hearne:
Blessed with an overactive imagination, Nick spent his early years absorbing as much pop culture as possible. From comic books to television, films, sci-fi, fantasy, horror – if it was great storytelling, he assimilated it! His fascination with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Marvel Comics X-Men drove him to become an avid reader of all literature and a devoted comic collector at the age of eleven! Even though Nick enjoyed most comic book related material, his deep passion for all things “mutant” led to his alter ego being formed, the Uncanny Mister X! In recent years, Nick has co-founded his own comic book company, Archlight Comics, a film company, Archlight Studios, and has become a skilled podcaster and podcast editor. Mister X has taken all of Nick’s talents and found an outlet for his mad ramblings… the My Big Fat Pull List podcast!
Just a common man, working hard with his hands, Jacob Petri has always had an eclectic taste in the world of pop culture. As a child, Jacob read comics, watched Saturday morning cartoons, enjoyed televised sports entertainment, played video games and collected trading cards and action figures. As an adult, he took his love of over the top theatrics and parlayed that into a mediocre Pro-Wrestling career, as he believed Pro-Wrestling was the closest he could get to live action comic books.
As Pistol Danger, he’s used his knowledge and skill both in the ring and on the internet, navigating video games during Let’s Plays and dishing out advice about the wrestling business. Needing to conquer new forms of entertainment, Pistol Danger has turned to podcasting, hoping to educate people on the finer points of geek culture, from comic books to films and everything in between.

Born with the ambition to one day be a professional football player and then join the military, Sean Murphy was always drawn towards hero based cartoons such as G.I. Joe and the X-Men. Sadly, those dreams were crushed after a terrible accident while playing street football. Sean learned that he was born with missing bones in his feet and his doctors informed him that he wouldn’t be able to play pro football let alone join the military. Missing out on being the hero he wanted to be, Sean turned towards the heroes he knew and loved… comic book superheroes!
As his teenage years turned to adulthood, Sean found a deep love for pop culture. Taking part in role-playing games, cosplaying as his favorite characters at conventions, Sean even worked at a comic book shop for over a decade. His need to absorb geek culture and fun facts earned him the nickname Smurphy. A fun-loving and sometimes socially clueless podcaster, Smurphy is eager to pass on all he knows and then some.
