During the Iron Age of superhero comics (1980–87), the seeds of Postmodernism took root and, arguably, the first flowering was Crisis on Infinite Earths, a twelve-issue miniseries published by DC Comics from April 1985 through March 1986. Created by writer Marv Wolfman and artists George Pérez, Jerry Ordway, Mike DeCarlo, and Dick Giordano, Crisis was an attempt to restore clarity to DC's multiple narratives, which over the years had become plagued with internal contradictions. Most of DC's superheroes, including Batman and Superman, were given a makeover, one that was intended to simplify their histories and eliminate inconsistencies from their backstories, while also employing various Postmodern strategies to deconstruct the superhero.
