Introduction

Levels

I've assigned each event a level that indicates its importance. These will let you be selective if you don't want to read every event. You can limit your reading to levels 1 and 2, for example, if you only care about events that affect DC's whole universe.

  • Level 1: These are publisher-wide events that are so important that they organize the whole list.
  • Level 2: These are less important publisher-wide events.
  • Level 3: These events involve smaller sets of characters, but they're important enough to merit their own Wikipedia articles.
  • Level 4: These are smaller events that don't have their own articles.
