_The Second Feature The Atom Continues The story

 

Giant Size Atom #1shot

-Continues After Comicbook Adventure Comics #521 (Second Feature)

 

(Note: BD #7 provides a rare checkpoint for the majority of the BD

titles. The following issues that necessarily precede and proceed that

issue are organised based on the order of the resurrected receiving

their mission on the full page spread. Precarious, I know, but that

full page spread is one of only a few bits of info available that

helps placement)

 

Flash Secret Files & Origins 2010 #1

Flash #1-4

-Fairly continuous issues

 

Justice League of America #47

Justice Society of America #42

-Mister Miracle has helped them get in to the starheart construct city

due to the influence of the Starheart.

Cinder.

 

Green Arrow #1-3

-Hal teams up with Oliver in GA #1-2

 

Brightest Day #6-8

-BD #6 has J’onn finding Miss Martian who according to Superboy, has

been on the Titans reserve roster for a while.

-BD #7 has the White Entity give the resurrected their missions in the

following order (seen on a full page spread, read left to right):

1) Captain Boomerang (Flash), 2) Jade (JLA), 3) Amon (Titans), 4)

Maxwell Lord (JLGL).

 

[Note: here is where things get really weird/tricky. In BD#8 Deadman,

Hawk and Dove react to getting the white lantern mission. Deadman

teleports with Dove to find Hal, yet in no other book I have read, do

they find him or arrive anywhere (?). Regarding the Birds of Prey - In

BOP #4 Hawk talks about his mission, so BOP #1-5 is post BD #7. BOP #10

(not listed as a Brightest Day Title) has Oracle responding to Booster

fighting Red Rockets and Jamie fighting OMACS (which doesn’t take

place simultaneously in JLGL - continuity error DC ?) which takes

place in JLGL #3. Yet Max gets his white lantern mission in JL GL #7.

So BOP #1-5 and JL GL #3-6 take place in a hyper-compressed time

period between Hawk receiving his White lantern mission and Max

receiving his.]
