Flash Forward: The superheroes of the Space Age

Since the 1930s, the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other DC Comics heroes have dominated American pop culture. But in the early 1950s, the brave animated legends had to reinvent themselves…

The transition into the ‘Space Age’ was a challenge for the costumed superheroes: Flash, Green Lantern and Hawkman had to grapple with new sci-fi worlds, where technology was developing at light-speed. Taschen will soon publish the second instalment in Paul Levitz’s series exploring the history of the DC Comics characters, this time focusing on ‘The Silver Age’ of 1956 to 1970.
