With Super Heroes nearly extinct at the start of the 1950s, DC Comics reignited the fire that would make them central to modern popular culture by infusing them with science fiction elements. To circumvent the limitations of the self-censoring Comics Code Authority, DC Comics' writers and editors spun ever-more fantastic tales, bringing Super Heroes and Bob Hope alike into the realm of sci-fi. The results were transformative, delivering the first-ever "reboot" of Golden Age greats with the FlashGreen Lantern, andHawkman as well as the hit TV show BatmanThe Silver Age of DC Comicschronicles it all, right down to the wacky shenanigans of television's Batman, which made him the embodiment for the camp sensibility of the '60s and further immortalized the Dark Knight as a pop culture icon for generations to come.
