As I understand it, the Silver Age Lana Lang was, at one time or another, depicted as having three different little brothers: Ronald, Larry and Alvin.
Here's my question: Was she - in the Silver Age- ever depicted as having more than one little brother at once, or was it, as I suspect, that she had a little brother, but the writers were inconsistent over the years as to what the little fellow's name was?
And whatever happened to him? I smell a mystery!
None of them ever appeared together in a story--and only Alvin had two--so I would imagine they were a brother and nobody bothered to check on his name (even though Ronald and Larry both appeared in 1951. Ah, the wonders of knowing your audience and stories are extremely ephemeral!).
Alvin showed up twice, in 1953 and 1956 in one story per year and then was sent to a farm upstate to play with the bunnies and unicorns. Thankfully, no one went to visit him once the Silver Age started.
Ah,OK, thank you for the info.
And they were all raised by Lana's Uncle Dave.
At least they weren't raised by her uncle Phineas. They'd all be fat or rubbery or human flamethrowers.
The Adventures of Uncle Phineas and his Elastic Flamethrowers.
I'd buy that for a dollar.
Donald three nephews, Popeye had three nephews, as noted 3 chipmunks... 3 is a popular number.
