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.
From the DC Universe news page in Justice League Europe #50 cover dated May 1993:
Can’t quite make that out? Here, allow me:
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 . . .
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:
JLE fared a little better:
and even managed to get a few more in after their revamp and new members:
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:
A couple from the Justice Society
(There was a Wildcat one but he was largely obscured by the cover art) as well as some odds and sods:
A little detail on the cover which always appealed to me for some reason.
Fred Hembeck cartoon from Green Lantern #125, cover dated February 1980.
