The fictional history of the DC Universe is a timeline of the major events in the fictional DC Universe. It represents fictional settings for most of the stories featured in DC Comics' publications. DC has published several official timelines with publications such as History of the DC Universe. These timelines coincide with each other because they were published by DC Universe. Plotholes are common in the Golden Age of Comics throughout the Modern Age because of the concept of the Multiverse. The timeline represents fictional time in the Golden Age, Silver Age, and Modern Age of comics. Due to the "floating timeline" that is applied to events in the Modern Age, everything published in the past 5 decades are considered to have taken place in the present. Please note that DC has officially revised its universe's history several times, such as in the limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths (1985), Zero Hour (1994) and Infinite Crisis (2006) and events in the current continuity might no longer be the same as when they were originally published.
