    That's probably what happened, but what I'll never understand is the reason that the people who conceived and approved of this idea thought it would be useful or good.

    ...and unnecessary. I'm not sure what useful purpose was ever served by dropping Diana's debut into the LEGENDS era; it didn't do a single positive thing for Diana or the DCU.

    I remember a mid-1990s issue of WONDER WOMAN in which Diana fought a fake Barry Allen Flash, whom she knew wasn't Wally West from his costume design, but when Diana defeated this fake Flash and...

    Back in the Silver Age, it was always either GL (Hal) or Superman. Rarely ever was it Batman in those days.

    If you go back and read those early JL of A issues from the 1960s, you'll find that the...

  8. Mike Sekowsky - underappreciated DC illustrator of the Silver Age?

    Mike Sekowsky supplied the illustration work for earliest years of the Silver Age JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, but despite the historical significance of his work, Sekowsky seems a bit underappreciated...
  9. Pre-COIE Earth-One Batman, Post-COIE Batman, and New 52 Batman - same entity?

    The last of this trinity of threads (see the other two on the Superman and Wonder Woman Forums). :)

    I'm exploring the meta-existential question of whether the DC Trinity of characters in three...
  10. Pre-COIE Earth-One Wonder Woman, Post-COIE Wonder Woman, and New 52 Wonder Woman - same entity?

    This topic follows the same line of argument as its sibling thread on the Superman Forum.

    Pre-COIE, the Earth-One Wonder Woman and the Earth-Two Wonder Woman were two separate and distinct...
  11. Pre-COIE Earth-One Superman, Post-COIE Superman, and New 52 Superman - same entity?

    From your point of view, are the Pre-COIE Earth-One Superman (Silver/Bronze Age), Post-COIE Superman, and New 52 Superman the same entity thrice transformed by reality-warping cosmic events, or are...
  12. A question about two Supermen (Kal-El vs. Kal-L) vs. Doomsday in INFINITE CRISIS

    During the Battle of Metropolis at the end of INFINITE CRISIS, two Supermen, Kal-El of Post-COIE Earth and Kal-L of Pre-COIE Earth-Two, easily leveled Doomsday together. The two Supermen did what...

    I've always liked the 1970s TV show interpretation of the SHAZAM mythos, a bit removed as it was from the original Golden Age comics mythos.

    Slight history correction: Mikhail Gorbachev became the General Secretary of the Soviet Union in 1985. Leonid Brezhnev died in 1982, but before Gorbachev, two more Soviet General Secretaries...

    I feel that KINGDOM COME is the most important thing to come out of DC Comics during the 1990s; it might have been as era-defining for the 1990s as COIE, THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, and WATCHMEN were...

    The 1990s were a mixed bag for DC Comics (but all eras are), but one lasting legacy of that era is this very website. Comic Book Resources is the *direct* legacy of KINGDOM COME. Had DC not...

    Would the four from the original Multiverse who disappeared into "paradise" at the end of COIE ever return to the DCU?

    After twenty years, we got the answer to that one in spades.

    All the collected editions of COIE went through the recoloring process, perhaps out of necessity. Owners of the vintage 1985-1986 floppies might have noticed that the inks and colors on their old...

  22. A never-used idea for Pre-COIE Earth-Two Superman...whose idea was it?

    Some time ago, I read that one of the original, never-used ideas for Superman during and after CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS was that the Silver/Bronze Age Earth-One Superman was to give his life to...

    I pick COIE for the exact opposite reason that its critics shun it: it was the perfect snapshot of its era, the apotheosis and last hurrah of Bronze Age DC Comics. It was the last, bittersweet...
