Monday Mash-Ups #12

Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays and I’ve been wanting to do something along those lines here.

So, and I admit to being HUGELY influenced by the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis, I’ve mashed up a few comic covers.

Each week I randomly generate two years and two months and then compare the titles I own from both those dates, trying to find some covers that, with a little basic photoshopping, I can mash together, and then I force the results on you lovely people.

Despero was always one of my favourite JLA villains, espeically after he went through the transformation that turned him into the musclebound rage monster. Him attacking the JLA wearing the United Nations flag as a cape is a heck of an image.

Here, though, he makes do with the short lived Generation Lost version of the team.

I have to admit to being really happy with this one, especially getting Green Arrow’s and Hawkman’s hands interacting with Fire and Blue Devil.

Ah, the 90s Justice League didn’t end well, did it?

More Minifigs

Or at least miniature pictures of characters. Sort of.

Looking back at some old copies of Justice League America and Justice League Europe recently and I remembered the little pictures of characters that used to appear in the issue number box on DC comics back in the early 90s. Oddly, despite the larger membership at the time, the JLA only had two pairs:

issue_number_fire_ice issue_number_booster_gold_blue_beetle

JLE fared a little better:

issue_number_metamorpho_captain_atom issue_number_elongated_man_rocket_red issue_number_flash_power_girl

and even managed to get a few more in after their revamp and new members:

issue_number_elongated_man_power_girl issue_number_crimson_fox_aquaman issue_number_green_lantern_flash

I’d thought for a while that JLA/JLE were the only titles with those but a quick look through my collection turned up these from Green Lantern:

issue_number_hal_jordan issue_number_guy_gardner issue_number_john_stewart

A couple from the Justice Society

issue_number_atom issue_number_flash

(There was a Wildcat one but he was largely obscured by the cover art) as well as some odds and sods:

issue_number_waverider issue_number_monarch issue_number_heckler

A little detail on the cover which always appealed to me for some reason.
