Random Retrospective #38 – Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #11

I love a good WHO’S WHO book which is why I found the entire run of this series in a second hand book store years and years ago and snapped them all up in one go. One or two of the issues are a little worse for wear but by and large they’re in good condition and they’ve been a great reference source over the years. The massive Omnibus version that DC brought out in 2021 (with the second volume due any time now) has reprinted the lot.

So with no story to recap, here’s my three random, favourite entries from this issue:

The original Infinity Inc made up of the sons, daughters, and erstwhile carry ons of some of Earth-2’s greatest heroes. At the time of writing, I think only Jade and Obsidian are still active and that’s only recently since the whole Rebirth/DOOMSDAY CLOCK/DARK NIGHTS METAL things.

If I were the Tattooed Man I would so be suing the tattooist who did that to me. I mean a butterfly covering my whole face? Really?

I enjoyed the mini-series that introduced us to Jonni Thunder on the whole, but the villain being called “Red Nails” because she had red-painted fingernails is some of the laziest writing ever.
