You may remember previous versions of this were known as The Complete New 52 Spreadsheet but I renamed it to fit better once the New 52 branding is over. To that end you’ll also notice that there’s multiple sheets to the spreadsheet. The first covers everything from the launch of the New 52 up to and including Convergence, while the second sheet commences with June 2015 with the DC You branding. The third comes from June 2016 to coincide with DC’s Rebirth relaunch. It helps keep it more manageable. :)

And now, the regularly featured segments:

Names, alliases and histories of Floronic Man and Professor Zoom

On January 20th, 2015, /u/dmull387 asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

So this one is pretty much all /u/Warlach, because I get the feeling not many other people have this level of minutiae off hand.

When did Woodrue switch from Plant Master to “The Flouronic Man,” and when did Professor Zoom’s alias switch from Adrian Zoom to Eobard Thawne? I’m rereading an old “greatest stories ever told” trade and the naming threw me off.

Eobard Thawne and Floronic Man together!

Thanks, I think :P

I mean, I do cheat by using blogs and wikis etc when writing my posts but it does help that my brain is far too full of this useless info. Anyway, here’s what I’ve got on this…

“What is the relationship between Aquaman, as ruler of Atlantis, and Poseidon, as god of the sea?”

On December 1st, 2014, /u/IrateGinger asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

What is the relationship between Aquaman, as ruler of Atlantis, and Posideon, as god of the sea?


In the New 52? None, so far, but when has that ever stopped us? To the Multiverse!

Now it’s true that since Flashpoint Poseidon has been only been seen in Azzarello’s amazing run, that ran from Wonder Woman Vol. 4 #1-35. That said, naturally as the Ruler of the Oceans he’s had a few run ins (swim ins?) over the years with the King of the Seas.

Will they ever explain ‘that fight’ between Martian Manhunter and the Justice League?

On October 20th, 2014, /u/Nightangale asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

Did [we] ever find out want went down between martian manhunter and the rest of justice league when he was a member?

For those who don’t know, I assume /u/Nightangale is referring to the panel from Justice League #8 that references, as a single splash page, that it “didn’t go well” when Martian Manhunter and the Justice League worked together: Continue reading

What’s up with Earth-D?

On October 15th, 2014, /u/switchfade asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

Can someone help me? I’m trying to read about earth D! I found the concept amazing but I have no idea how to find out more

DC history nerd here! I think I can probably help :)

First we need to go way way back to the 60’s. The decision to explain how the the 1940’s Flash (Jay Garrick, the guy with the metal hat) and the new Flash (Barry Allen) could both exist was to say they existed on parrallel Earths, and the two finally met in the seminal story Flash of Two Worlds (1961). This lead to the establishment of Earth-One, where the modern characters lived, and Earth-Two, where Jay Garrick and the Justice Society hung out. The JLA and the JSA the had annual adventures where they’d team up for, basically, the next two decades.
