Dave Elyea replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"I don't know, as much as I love me all the Golden Age characters I can get, I always thought it was just a little off that Miss America, of all people, would name her twins "Wanda" & "Pietro", as opposed to, say,…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Least Useful Supe Power
"Hawkman, at least, always had a collection of weapons and gadgets, so he had some sort of offensive capability, plus the occasional new usage of his anti-gravity metal.  Poor Angel had nothing."
Tuesday
Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Superman
"I suspect that the original intention was for Lois to be the sort of snappy dialog/insult-flirting character found in so many romantic comedies of the era, but the problem was that Clark rarely if ever snapped back, in either identity, which left…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion The Lazarus Pit
"I think that, until Batman #400, they'd been vague about the whole dead or dying thing.  It seemed more like Ra's used the Pits when gravely wounded or seriously ailing, but it never seemed to make anyone younger, altho it seemed to…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion The Lazarus Pit
"I could have sworn that originally, there was only one Lazarus Pit, its location known only to Ra's, and he'd been using it repeatedly over the years/centuries, but not too often. Over time, additional Pits started popping up in various…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Super-siblings!
"The Golden Age Daredevil (Bart Hill) had an unnamed brother who died filling in for him in Silver Streak #9.  I can't see how this sibling would fit in with either version of Bart's origin, but for semi-obvious reasons, I'll…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads Captain America
"I suppose a Silver Age DC Captain America would have a whole different set of editorial flaws--he still would have been light in the personality department, but he would have had a regular job of some kind, and at least a handful of recurring…"
Apr 6
Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Super-siblings!
"Van-Zee, the second Nightwing of Kandor, had a twin brother named Dik-Zee, and an older brother named Gem-Zee.  Their mother, Kyla Var-El, was the sister of Jor-El's father.  Jor-El also had a twin brother named Nim-El, who was the…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Super-siblings!
"Barbara (Batgirl) Gordon had a brother named Tony, who had originally appeared in the early 1950's (long before Babs herself).  I always felt he should have just been relegated to Earth-2 (he really should have been the Police Commissioner…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads Captain America
"Back in the Golden Age, most of the super-heroes' alter-egos were near-ciphers: Mild mannered reporter, bored wealthy playboy, earnest young scientist, etc. By those standards, Steve Rogers was possibly above average for the time, with a clear…"

Dave Elyea replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. “Once More With…”
"If I recall correctly, while Doc certainly ran into a number of crooked women during the course of his adventures, he was blind-sided by most of them, not because he couldn't imagine a woman being a crook, but because of his professed utter…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Iron Fist' took a while to forge
"On the flip side of the issue, tho, is that while the caucasian Iron Fist raises the issue of "cultural appropriation" and "a white guy naturally being better at everything than the non-whites who invented it", Shang-Chi, even…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Captain Comics reviews for March 8, 2017
"As near as I can tell, "blunked out eyes" originated with Pogo's parody, "Lulu Arfin' Annie"."
Mar 11
Dave Elyea replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. “Once More With…”
"At the time inn question, weren't all American comic books (except Charlton's, since they had their own printing press, which is why their stuff looked a bit different from everything else) printed at the same plant? I could swear that…"
Mar 8
Dave Elyea replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. “Once More With…”
"As a scientist, it's possible that Morbius, at that point in his existence, didn't believe in actual supernatural vampires & werewolves, and so focused on the one werewolf that he knew was "scientific" like himself. It also…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Marvel teaser: "Generations"
"More than marketing, there's the matter of trademark protection--if Mar-Vell isn't selling enough to justify publishing him, toss him out and whip up another character to carry the "Captain Marvel' name and then it's just…"
