SINS OF THE BRONZE AGE
This crisis is a direct sequel to the events shown on the famous Crisis on Infinite Earths, and while on Zero Hour: Crisis in Time is also mentioned the first crisis, i’s clear that this, Infinite Crisis, is the true sequel to the events on the original crisis.
Twenty years have passed since the original crisis, and many things have happened, the Bronze Age was born, and the stories became more mature, darker and more violent. You could say that it wasn’t a sin of the Bronze Age per se, but a sin of the times that civilization in real life were living.
However, it’s normal to refer to the Bronze Age, as a way to distinct it from other Comic Book Eras with precisely those said characteristics.
Imagine how this evolved storytelling would be seen by characters from the previous eras, Golden & Silver ones?
Characters with moral visions, even impossible to match to real life people, but definitely the ideal portraits of the comic book literature of those more naive times, in the past.
The Joker killed a Robin (Jason Todd), Batman had developed plans to beat fellow superheroes and to control humanity (JLA: Tower of Babel; Brother Eye Satellite & OMAC sleep agents), Green Lantern Hal Jordan killed the entire GL Corps and the Oan Guardians to get enough power and getting back all that he lost; Wonder Woman murdered a man (Maxwell Lord), and it seems that the only way that Superman inspires humankind is when he was dead.
In twenty years, many gritty things have happened, and several of those weren’t commited by villains but by heroes.
Imagine that noble characters sacrificed themselves in the first crisis to save this dark and violent world?
Real heroes and true villains. Something disturbingly in common? Both types think that what they do is a just cause.
Infinite number of Earths, all erased from reality, and the only remnant one is hardly a role model to inspire hope and peace.
In real life, there are many layers of grey, to watch all those dark situations in different angles,…
…but for Golden & Silver Age comic book characters that they were made for only seeing in white and black?
Imagine when some of those Golden & Silver Age characters would start to interact with the Bronze Age characters, standing in the same grounds, breathing the same air,…
…adopting the same dark and violent behavior…
…because after all, the end justifies the means, right?
They are looking to end the dark Earth of now, to shape a perfect world, one where the morals of yesteryear would lead to a brighter future.
Such inspiring ideal can only lead to something good, right?
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
A man wants that the woman he loves would live forever.
Other man wants to grasp perfection.
And a young boy with too much power wants to be a hero.
Nothing good would come out of this and precious blood will be spilled.
