Monday Mash-Ups #11

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.

Yeah, Kyle Rayner’s ended up babysitting Thunderbolt on a trip to Las Vegas . . . and you know that’s not going to end well, right?

Okay, I will hold my hand up – the Super-Team Family blog influence is now in full effect.

The last mash-ups I’ve done have all taken one or more characters and inserted them into the cover of another series; it took me nine attempts to work out that Ross over at Super-Team Family is actually creating his own covers by combining the characters into something new, not an existing cover. I hope he and any of his readers that happen to see this and the following mash-ups as respectful homages.

Who would you rather see as the new Green Lantern? Hal Jordan or John Carter? Hell, why not Carol Ferris or Dejah Thoris?

This was an easy one – just pop the JSA behind the window frame and voila!

Didn’t realise until years later that the Scarab series was actually meant to be a Dr Fate mini-series but John Smith’s plans were so off the wall, DC nixed the idea and made him come up with Scarab . . . who ended up getting a couple of cameos in JSA a few years later.

Admittedly he died in JSA but . . .

Heroes In Crisis – Who Dies Part 2

Just seen this article over at Newsarama where the cover of DC Nation #4 is revealed, asking which of six characters will die in the forthcoming Heroes In Crisis:

A few weeks ago, I posted my guesses as to the victims and, I’m sad to say, one of them – Green Lantern Kyle Rayner – is on that cover.

The article says:

Booster Gold and Harley Quinn have long been identified as suspects in the murders, so they can likely safely be eliminated. Red Robin recently spent months imprisoned by Mr. Oz (and thought to be dead by Batman) which would make his death probably unlikely.

Arsenal was just revealed to possibly be returning as a cast member of a revamped Red Hood and the Outlaws … so there’s that.

So that just leaves Cyborg and Kyle; can we really see DC killing its major African-American hero instead of a guy who has multiple other people running around with the same power? Especially now Grant Morrison’s taking over Hal Jordan’s series.

Sorry, Kyle, I think your days are numbered.

Oh, and I got Booster right as being one of the accused, as well.
