Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Yet Another Superman Question
"I didn't mention Vol-Don because I wasn't sure if he would actually be Superman's look alike if he took off his glasses, or if, by some uncanny coincidence, he actually looked like the illusion of a more frail Clark that Superman…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Yet Another Superman Question
"If I recall correctly, Superman actually had three look alikes/"Identical Cousins" in Kandor: Don-El, the son of Jor-El's older brother Nim-El, Van-Zee (who I believe was descended from Jor-El's sister, whose name escapes me at…"

Dave Elyea replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Captain Action
"Captain Action's power coins made a brief return to the DC Universe when they turned up in the hands of a Superman villain who went by the names "Superwoman" and "Obsession".  She first appeared as Dana Dearden in…"

Dave Elyea replied to The Baron's discussion How Old Would Comics Characters Be If They Aged Normally? (And What Would They Be Doing Now?)
"Actually, Rick Tyler was the only one of the "JSA brats" whose age made sense to me, as his parents didn't get engaged until Showcase #56 (May 1965), as opposed to most of the other JSAers, who'd been in commited relationships…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion How old is Alfred Pennyworth?
"One thing that's always bothered me about Alfred is that he's always referred to by his first name, while most proper butlers are always addressed by their last names.  Even the Avengers' butler is Edwin Jarvis, not "Jarvis…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion How old is Alfred Pennyworth?
"As near as I can tell, Alfred's work as a resistance fighter led to his intelligence work, during which he acquired his field medic & mechanical skills,etc., and my own head canon is that his acting career was a cover for his intelligence…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion How old is Alfred Pennyworth?
"It all depends on which parts of Alfred's backstory/stories are considered in continuity at the time one tries to figure out his age.  After all, back in the 80's, he had a kid with Mlle. Marie, who had canonically died by the end of…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Was there ever a plausible explanation for Superman's vision powers
"I seem to recall one of the novels (probably one of the ones written by Elliot S! Maggin) claimed that Kryptonians had both "active" and "passive" optic nerves, resulting in their ability to both perceive images from the light…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Fawcett Comics: The Golden Age reprint wish list
"Certainly, that sort of Apples & Oranges comparison muddies the waters, but besides the fact that for a while Captain Marvel Adventures was published twice monthly, while neither of Superman's titles were, if you count just the Marvel…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Golden Age Marvel: What they have (and haven't) collected
"While I see the iconic appeal of doing a "Robin Hood" type hero, I think the actual "fatal flaw" of an archer super-hero is that they work best as snipers, and there's no reason for them to be closer than across the street…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Golden Age Marvel: What they have (and haven't) collected
"To be fair, I think the real reason for so many non-powered heroes in the day had less to do with keeping things from getting too far fetched (that ship sailed before Alan Scott started talking to light fixtures), but because it's easier to…"

Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion X-men/Doom Patrol sales questions
"Obviously, I didn't quite remember the story quite right either, but I certainly didn't think you were defending it.  Clearly, we're all expressing our amazement that it somehow made it into print in the first place.  At…"
Feb 6
Dave Elyea replied to Randy Jackson's discussion X-men/Doom Patrol sales questions
"I'm not sure that actually remembering what happened in Action #592-3 is much better, as I've never understood how it got passed the Comics Code that Superman was making "solo" videos, as pairing him with a human partner would…"

Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion Golden Age Marvel: What they have (and haven't) collected
"I remain amazed that Roy Thomas never did anything with the Subbie character in any of his Invaders related work."
Jan 29
Dave Elyea replied to Captain Comics's discussion DC collections: What Golden Age comics they have (and haven't) reprinted
"I believe there are still some Golden Age Robin stories from Star-Spangled that haven't been collected yet, including most of those that co-starred Batman."

Dave Elyea replied to The Baron's discussion "Gingold" - Hard or Soft "G"?
"I always pronounce it gin as in "gin" and gold as in "gold", so put me down for one soft G and one hard G."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, 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.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
