Filling In The One Year Gap
- Wonder Girl (Teen Titans (third series) #36 )
DC's "One Year Later" event occurred March of 2006. In Teen Titans #33, Superboy and Nightwing are in the thick of the Infinite Crisis world-shattering event. With Teen Titans #34, a full year has passed since the Crisis. A comatose Cyborg awakens to discover the only active Titans: Robin, Ravager and Kid Devil. Cyborg is told that the Titans had quite a few membership shake-ups during his "missing year." Readers shared in Cyborg's confusion. Following the limited series, Infinite Crisis, every DC comic series jumped ahead by one year between February 2006 and March 2006. With DC's March books, the characters' histories resumed "one year later." The events of that "missing year" were revealed in various DC books throughout 2006-2007.I've taken on the titanic task of putting all the "one year gap" events in their proper sequence. It wasn't easy, since some events tended to contradict each other. Looking back, I think DC really dropped the ball on this one. If they weren't going to cover the missing pieces in 52, they should have devoted the annuals to the 'missing year' blanks. As it stands, we know virtually nothing about Molecule, Talon, Young Frankenstein, Little Barda, Mas Y Menos and Riddler's Daughter.
Ah, well. For what it's worth, here's the One Year Gap Timeline. Settle in with a Mochaccino and enjoy. And, here's hoping COUNTDOWN will be kinder to the Titans!
