"I've always believed that the Bob Hope & Jerry Lewis comics took place on the same Earth as the Inferior Five (Eath-12?), which seemed to feature a full complement of Silver Age DC heroes while still being a world in which Harvard-Harvard…"
"I can see where, all things being equal, Dr. Mid-Nite could be considered a Batman counterpart, if only because, despite wearing 90% of a Batman costume at the time, the Earth-2 Robin was clearly the counterpart of the Earth-1 Robin. BUT, having the…"
"In Justice League #82, in response to the menace caused by the alien contractor, Creator-2, the entire membership of the JSA gathers for what seems to be the first time in a story--oddly, while Batman makes his first appearance here, Robin is…"
"AS far as I can tell, all we've ever had is our respective "head canons". As near as I can tell, no one at DC, including the folks that did the Superman/Star Sapphire story, has any memory of Carol ever having been paralyzed. Maybe…"
"I'd always just assumed that the star sapphire healed her, and Hal never dared to mention it for fear that it might cause her to permanently revert to her Star Sapphire persona. Or something. Either that, or it's like Lucy…"
"Well, we did only have Bova's word for it that it was Miss America that picked those names, so it could have been her. Still, given the naming conventions of the rest of the High Evolutionary's creations, it seems like they would have…"
"The movie Bubba-hotep actually addressed the matter of mummy potty breaks, and related graffiti. Ibis the Invincible actually debuted as a mummy in Whiz Comics #2, along side the aforementioned Captain Marvel. On the other hand, while…"
"I could never forget Egg Fu, I just tend to think of him as more of the "monster or robot" type than a super-villain. I'm actually surprised that no one has ever revealed that Dr. Yes was one of the otherwise unaccounted for Egg…"
"What I find interesting is that, even in those days before most creative teams operated on a "12 issues and we're out" basis, I can't think of any other long-running series where the writer has an unbroken run lasting at least 20…"
"I've heard that too, but I have to wonder, why would someone who hated the character so much (allegedly), seem to have spent more time writing her adventures than anyone else? I haven't done the math, but it certainly seems like Kanigher…"
"I'm pretty sure that none of Wonder Woman's enemies knew that she'd lost her powers--other than Ares/Mars, who seemed to spend most of that period attacking the Amazons in their "recharging dimension", I don't think any…"
"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,…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
