The Golden Age of Comic Books was a period beginning in 1938 and ended in the mid '50s. During this era, comic books became more popular, with the concept of superhero created and firmly established. Many famous heroes made their first appearance in the Golden Age, such as Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern.
The era was kickstarted by the publishing of Action Comics #1 in June, 1938, which featured the first appearance of Superman and the superhero. Superman became extremely popular. Soon, superheroes dominate the pages of comic books from both DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and Fawcett Comics.
The First World War had a prefound effect on the Golden Age. Comic books became known as cheap and portable sources of good triumphing over evil. War bonds were advertised on comics covers and covers were argubly full of propoganda.
The era ended in the mid '50s, with the release of more gritty stories by many companies, the cancellation of long running series such as the Justice Society of America, and the publishing of Seduction of the Innocent, by Dr. Fredric Wertham, who argued that superhero comic books led to juvenile deliquency. After this, the silver age began.

Nine million years ago, Cybertron was at peace until Megatron led his newly formed Decepticon army against the peaceful Autobots which began the very, very, very long series of wars that resulted in a broken planet.
Cybertron entered into a new Golden Age when the Plasma Energy Chamber was used to repower the planet which was now in the hands of the peaceful Autobots, who would probably use it a lot better than the Decepticons did....
