"According to Mike's Amazing World of DC the DP's debut in My Greatest Adventure #80 went on sale Apr. 18 1963, and The X-Men #1 Jul. 2. I suspect Marvel could've turned an issue around in that time, if the title was already on…"

"I agree that there's no way to know, but I've always thought "Brotherhood of Evil" is more likely to have been conceived first, and "Brotherhood of Evil Mutants" came a little later, despite the fact that both magazines…"

"Doctor Solar came out before the X-Men. My theory is that Stan Lee saw the look of Solar and came up with Cyclops."

"Is there some reason we're assuming Stan did the copying? Doom Patrol was very specifically copying Marvel style, so it's not hard to believe they were acting on inside info. I don't know, and I don't think anyone really does, so…"

"Fred, I agree that X-MEN looks like a FF knock-off. Since it was dated Sept 1963, that means it was on stands more like July of that year. Others may know more than I about production schedules in those days, but I assume X-MEN got into production…"

"My theory on the resemblances between the first issues of DOOM PATROL and X-MEN: Marvel's already planning to do X-MEN, in keeping with Goodman's order to imitate anything that works, that being Marvel's own FF. However, somehow Lee,…"

"Certainly appreciate your views, Captain!  I'd never read the original D.P. stories so I didn't have any pre-conceived notions about them when I read Morrison's run.  But on old favorites of mine, I'd had that same…"

"I never thought of the DP as an FF parallel, since everybody always talks about the X-Men parallel. I see it now. I find both arguments compelling. Doom Patrol was a huge favorite of the Li' Capn. Here was my first issue: I remember it vividly,…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Chris Freiberg's discussion The World's Strangest Heroes... The Doom Patrol!
"A lot of weird parallels between the Doom Patrol and the X-Men.  I can't recall when I first heard about them -- probably sometime in the early '80s, although I never collected The New Teen Titans.  I did get the TPB collections…"

Welcome to the Comics Round Table,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame5@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
