Elongated Man Coming To The Flash

Well this is good news! Elongated Man is coming to the small screen in the next series of The Flash. According to the brief article,

[Ralph] Dibny will be a “fast-talking private investigator” who, after discovering his metahuman abilities will help Team Flash solve “one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.”

And with a bit of luck, if Ralph’s around, Sue won’t be too far away either.

I miss those two in the DCU – hopefully Rebirth will bring them back soon.

Sorry, What Now?

From the DC Universe news page in Justice League Europe #50 cover dated May 1993:

Can’t quite make that out? Here, allow me:

madonnna_worshipping_groundhogs_trimmed

NOTICE: Madonna worshipping groundhogs are flipping Flash’s emblem upside down. This makes them instantly collectable. Hoard any copies you can!

Was this some weird critique of the 90s collecting mania? Or had someone at DC dropped some serious mushrooms?

Man . . . I just . . . I mean . . .

 

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.
