This is the official timeline for the DC Mayhem continuity. This is made to keep our continuity rock solid, and so people (especially the authors!) have an exact idea of what important events have happened to the various characters in use, and when they happened, so we can prevent continuity conflicts. This will be updated periodically as more and more characters and stories are written.

Did I miss any readings, cause I don't recall hearing of any mentioning of Donna Troy in any of the Mayhem titles I've read.

@dngn4774: Blah I forgot her. Someone started an Action Comics but never finished it, I erased it but I guess the Donna crap squeaked by in the timeline.
