The Cast Of Generations: Shattered – And When They Debuted

DC Comics titles today have ads for Generations: Shattered, the cross-time caper led by Dan Jurgens, spinning out of Detective Comics #1027 and Dark Nights: Death Metal and maybe, just maybe, having some relevance to Future State and what will follow it. And laying out when and where the various characters have their origins.
