This chapter discusses Grant Morrison’s comic book works in the “Prismatic Age” of the superhero genre. The 2000s was identified as the “Prismatic Age,” because it was during this decade where the practice of writing variants for existing superheroes became widespread. The era was a great way in informing readers and fans about the history of superheroes as well as showing old and familiar characters new treatment. In the “Prismatic Age,” Morrison’s works include All Star Superman, The Flash, and Batman.
