Opal City is a city that features in DC Comics.




Opal City was a settlement that was located in the region of Maryland in America on the planet Earth. (JLA v1 #115) Its establishment began first occurred in 1648 when Puritans and later Huguenot refugees arrived in-ward from the east-coast of America where they established the small town of Port O'Souls. From there, the site was developed into what became known as Opal City. (Starman Secret Files and Origins v1 #1)

Between 1909-1930, Opal went through a period of great expansion leading to spires along with streamlined wonders rising up from the original city. This leads to the older parts of the city being given the name of Old Town. (Starman Secret Files and Origins v1 #1)

Some months ago, a mysterious new Starman began to operate in Opal City where he responded to various incidents after which he always returned to the Sunshine Sanitorium. Stargirl and Dr. Mid-Nite investigated the event where the new Starman requested their help as he knew nothing of his past but came to realise that he was suffering from a mental disorder. (Justice Society of America v3 #1)


Following the Flashpoint, a new version of reality was created with a different history of events.

Whilst searching for Hunter Zolomon, the Flash came upon the Dark Church of the Black Hand where he helped defeat the cult. (The Flash v5 #67)
