Listing Detail Tabs

Tangent Comics was a DC Comics imprint created in 1997, developed from ideas created by Dan Jurgens. It was formed from various one-shots.
According to Dan Jurgens the Tangent Universe is greatly influenced by the presence of super-powered beings. Earth Tangent's economic, geographic and political landscapes are defined by the superhero community.
The history of the Tangent Universe radically diverges from the real world due to the presence of superheroes.
The 1997 titles consists of:
The Atom: The grandson of the Tangent Earth's first superhero, an atomic veteran, takes on the mantle and learns a horrible truth about his family.
Doom Patrol: A team from the future arrives in the present, warning of the impending destruction of the Earth. Team members include Doomsday, Star Sapphire, Firehawk and Rampage.
The Flash: The first baby born in space grows up to become a teenage superhero with light-based powers. She can move at the speed of light and create holographic constructs.
Green Lantern: A woman with a lantern which, when placed upon a grave, can bring the dead back to life just long enough to complete unfinished business.
The Joker: A costumed anarchist in the city of New Atlantis uses pranks to highlight the failings and hypocrisy of those in power.
Metal Men: The Metal Men are a covert military group, so named because they came back from every mission unscathed. The members are nicknamed "Hawkman", "Lobo", "Gravedigger", and “Black Lightning”.
Nightwing: A group of agents from a mystical secret society that controls much of the world go renegade.
Sea Devils: A society of mer-people are created by the nuclear exchange that destroyed Cuba and Florida in 1962.
Secret Six: The Secret Six are a covert group of heroes who are formed when the Flash, Atom, the Joker, Spectre, Plastic Man and Manhunter join forces to combat Dr. Aquadus, a living ocean.
