    So the age of comics now goes gold, silver, bronze, iron, and modern. First time I seen Iron named as such was this thread. (I seen terms like modern and post modern used elsewhere).


The "Iron Age" designation has been around for years. What hasn't, as far as I know, is an exact demarcation of its start and end. I decided to draw a line in the sand and make it 1986-2000.

What happened in 2000? Bryan Singer's first X-Men movie.

    I have to wonder, when the modern age gets old are we risking running out of good metals for age names? If we went classical value and transitioned to age of technology we'd go platinum, gold, silver, copper, bronze, iron and have a bit of room.


I would call 2000 to the present the Silicon Age of Comics, because movies define this age, and they are made possible by CGI, which in turn is made possible by computer chips, which in turn are made possible by silicon.
