Dave Elyea replied to Travis Herrick (Modular Mod)'s discussion Aqualad/Tempest Quiestion
"I get the feeling that Aqualad was created to be Aquaman's "Jimmy Olsen", rather than his "Robin"--other than a handful of TT issues where he could command sea life, Garth's only ability was surviving in water. …"

"My guess would be that either Eddie Whit was somehow blackmailed into resuming his Ant identity, of someone else had taken over the identity, probably in the hope of diverting attention to Eddie. Unfortunately, if we expect Kid Flash and/or Wonder…"

"Here's that calendar page I mentioned earlier.  It really seems like a helmet-less Guardian might have been their concept when they rolled this series out.  I'd still like to see the story this should have been."

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"It seems like most of Robin's Bronze Age foes were Duela Dent.  I always thought he should fight an evil archer called "The Sparrow", because of the poem.  Still, the Raven appears to be as good as it got for Robin Foes…"

"DC has always been remarkably inconsistent as to just how famous their heroes' alter egos were, especially the Titans--not only should Dick & Roy be favorites of the paparazzi just for being the "youthful wards" of a couple of…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"It's interesting: during this run, Wally seems to be the youngest of the "original" Titans, and the only one East or West who was still in high school.  Of course, the Beast Boy in Titans-West was the most mature version of Gar…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"I wonder if Englehart & Rogers worked Marvel-style on Detective?  It seems to me that Rogers got his start at DC drawing Rozakis' back up stories before "graduating" to Batman, so maybe he drew this page as a favor to…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"That's a very valid point that hadn't occurred to me.  Still, in order to have recognized Bat-Girl, he'd have to have been a big ol' super-hero fanboy!"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"I think that Bat-Girl's prominence here was mostly because he had intentions to use her more in Batman Family, altho ultimately, nothing really came of that.  If not for that connection, I'd have expected Aquagirl to have taken her…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"Especially since all the editorial fiats in this run seemed to focus on Mal, making him seem like the central character of this run, yet he remains mostly a blank space as a character.  Looking back at this run now, I never realized before that…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"Even with all the raiding of the Kirby Kupboard going on at DC during that time, Mal's Guardian remains an oddity: The SSOSV Manhunter was a continuation of the Goodwin/Simonson Manhunter (which was based on Kirby's original Manhunter),…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"Interesting idea about Wonder Girl's fluctuating powers, altho since at this point, her gifts were still attributed to the Purple Ray, her powers seemed to be more science-fictional than mythological like Wonder Woman's.  I always…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"To be fair, while there were more Titans on the team at this point, there wasn't that much more power, with Wally & Donna still being the big guns (when Speedy wasn't accidentally hitting them with his arrows).  One of the oddest…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"I'm not sure how much of this I went into the previous Titans thread, but here's my side of the story: first off, while I did design the costume worn by The Hornblower, I never designed a costume for a character named The Hornblower, nor…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"My gut instinct is that this incarnation of the team came into existence only because the sales figures on the Titans' issue of DC Super Stars convinced enough suits that there was still life left in the concept, so they should try to cash…"

Dave Elyea replied to Philip Portelli's discussion TEEN TITANS (1976-79)
"I find it mind-boggling that Bumblebee wound up becoming one of the most long-lasting legacies of this incarnation of the Titans (the other one won't show up until #50).  I was actually ok with the honey-gun, if only because Marvel already…"

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.
