From the Justice Society of America to the Legion of Super-Heroes, The New Golden Age will unlock DC’s epic and secret-ridden history of heroism, launching a new group of titles set firmly in the DC Universe.

DC’s future…and its past…will never be the same again. But how are Mime and Marionette connected to this? Why are Rip Hunter and the Time Masters the most unlikable heroes in the DC Universe? And who or what is…Nostalgia? Don’t miss the start of the strangest mystery to have ever plagued the DC Universe.

How Did We Get Here?

The lost sidekicks did get teased as a lost Legion of Sidekicks in Flashpoint Beyond #5 (of 6) [full spoilers here] on the Time Masters’ chalk board referring to a “Rise of the Legacy League“.

In addition, we did get the names of these sidekicks, with a few others, at the end of Flashpoint Beyond #6 (of 6) [full spoilers here] dubbed as the “The Thirteen” folding back into the timeline, after seemingly being removed by the Time Masters at some point for some reason, with the looming threat of time villain Per Degaton scheming.

All Flashpoint Beyond spoilers, for a limited series that skated under the radar, but is important in the post Dark Crisis of Infinite Earths era, can be found here.
