• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

An imprint of DC Comics which used to be an independent company. Wildstorm Productions was originally a company founded by Jim Lee that was one of the original founders of Image Comics, and Wildstorm's comics were part of the Image shared universe. However, when Jim Lee parted ways with Image, the Shattered Image Crisis Crossover was used as a Cosmic Retcon to separate Wildstorm's Image titles into a shared universe all their own. Later, in 1999, DC Comics formally bought Wildstorm during the aftershocks of The Great Comics Crash of 1996.

This led to a golden age for Wildstorm as several of its most iconic titles were launched during this period.

Eventually, after a few Intercontinuity Crossovers with the DC Universe, 52 formally assimilated the Wildstorm Universe as DC's Earth-50.

In 2010, DC retired the Wildstorm imprint due to changes in the market. But that might have been no more than a head-fake, because the next year they integrated Wildstorm into a rebooted DC universe, complete with a revived Stormwatch ongoing.

Notable comics published by Wildstorm include:
