    I want to know why you chose 1990-1994 and not 1990-1995.

    Why are these periods not consisent. Why 1980-1984? Why not 1980-1985? '85 and some of '86 are Pre-COIE-reboot DC even.
    Thank you America for voting for change.

    I'm choosing 5-year periods, splitting decades in half.

    It was one of DC's strongest periods for their titles.

    The start of Robin probably is the best and the beginning of spoiler.

    Even though it starts in 89 the bulk of the run is in the 90's so the "5 Years Latter..." run of the Legion of Superheroes gets my vote. It was just so far ahead of what was going on with the regular DCU books at the time. It was almost a Vertigo version of the Legion in alot of ways. Not "weird" Vertigo but more mature. Keith Giffen and the Bierbaums were on fire with this run. Issues 1-38 still stand as one of my favorite runs off all time for any comic.

    Starman by James Robinson. One of my favorite series of all time.
