Dave Elyea replied to Commander Benson's discussion From the Archives: Deck Log Entry # 60 Saturday Morning Silver Age: Part Four--Hanna-Barbera, the Best to You Each Saturday Morning
"I always thought that the name "Thad Ghostal" was an addition made to the Talk show incarnation of Space Ghost, and not the original, but it's not like HB was noted for more subtle character names.  Birdman's FEAR…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"I think DC did a better job of defining these relationships than the bulk of their competitors did.  Wasn't Rip Carter even identified as the legal guardian of the Boy Commandos?  That's more than Bucky ever got until the…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"Despite my previous comment about the 1950's Cap & Bucky possibly being different people, I think it's best not to wander too far into the swampy waters of ret-con, given the actual topic of this discussion--Bucky in particular has…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"Bucky was originally described as being the "camp mascot" of the Army Camp Steve Rogers was stationed at, altho exactly what that means is anyone's guess--was the entire camp collectively responsible for him, or was he technically the…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Inhumans: What's important?
"I wonder what the Inhumans would have been like if they had been introduced as a stand alone concept instead of supporting players in the Fantastic Four.  A great many of their problems in terms of holding their own is that their original…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Randy Jackson reads the Golden Age Batman
"I don't think some of these relationships were ever really spelled out--there were a lot of "youthful wards", like Robin, Speedy, Sandy & Kitten (Cat-Man's "niece"), while Tim (aka Kid Terror) was ostensibly just…"

Dave Elyea replied to 3's discussion WTF Costume Design (DCEU)
"I'm pretty sure that the main reason that Zook was classified as a pet instead of a sidekick was so that his "costume" could pass the Comics Code."

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Inhumans: What's important?
"Imagine how dismayed the rest of Medusa & Crystal's immediate family must be that they've both dated a guy who doesn't have any of the same grandparents they do!  Still, it's not like it wasn't kind of creepy when…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Inhumans: What's important?
"I still can't believe that anyone was dumb enough to think that the Inhumans would make viable replacements for the X-Men & mutantkind in general, since despite the visual similarity, the two concepts are essentially opposites: the mutants…"

Dave Elyea replied to 3's discussion WTF Costume Design (DCEU)
"Obviously, Michael Keaton wore the bulky rubber costume because he wasn't ever going to be the spandex body type, and not because it was in any way more "realistic" than anything worn by Adam West.  Unfortunately, that wound up…"

Dave Elyea replied to 3's discussion WTF Costume Design (DCEU)
"It's boggled my mind for years that, now that so many Olympic athletes (for a while, even the swimmers) are competing in full-body spandex outfits that are just a mask and the occasional cape away from what super-heroes have been wearing since…"

Dave Elyea replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"Obviously, the whole tax business was just a fig leaf to provide some kind of in-story motivation for the editorial mandate that Superboy be written out of the LSH.  I'd rather have seen him suffering some ill-effects from all the memory…"

Dave Elyea replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #201 The Earth-Two Silver-Age Challenge---Answers!
"The "Return to the Golden Age" was previewed in Wonder Woman #156 (Aug. 1965), when WW goes to a comic book store to check out rare Golden Age WW comics, and finds herself reliving her battle with the Brain Pirate.  In this issue, she…"

Dave Elyea replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #201 The Earth-Two Silver-Age Challenge---Answers!
"For what it's worth, the Earth-1 Wonder Woman started out with the strappy sandals (hopefully intended to represent gladiator sandals, but to my youthful eyes, they looked more like ballet slippers), and then switched to the more familiar red…"

Dave Elyea replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 200 The Earth-Two Silver-Age Challenge!
"I absolutely see your point, but somewhere along the line, there was a story wherein the Martian Manhunter attempted to teach Damage to use the telepathic ability that presumably came with J'Onn's DNA (do Martians even have…"

Dave Elyea replied to The Baron's discussion Commissioner Gordon and Perry White: Do You Think They Know?
"Plus, Superman being an employee of the Planet raises some serious ethics issues.  Reporters aren't supposed to make a living interviewing themselves."
