Captain Marvel! Captain Atom! Captain Triumph! Does WildStorm have a Captain (I guess Captain Atom was sorta there for a bit!)? Probably, but I don’t know anything about them! Heck, I don’t even know anything about Captain Triumph, but I just happened to find his name on Wikipedia! I was just about to throw in the towel and snark about Quality comics not having any Captains, so how quality can they be? But they do have one! And now this intro is going on too long!
DC’s picked up some great characters over the years who’ve been added to the DC Universe. Such as…
Quality Comics! Original home of Plastic Man, Blackhawk Squadron, Uncle Sam, the Ray, the Phantom Lady, and the rest of the Freedom Fighters!
Fawcett Publications! Birthplace of Captain Marvel, the Marvel Family, and… uh… the Spy Smasher? Man, DC really hasn’t done much with these characters.
Charlton Comics! The starting point for the Question, Captain Atom, Nightshade, Sarge Steel, Judomaster, that nutty Peacemaker guy with a stupid hat, and sorta the Blue Beetle!
WildStorm! Source of a bunch of characters who I know nothing whatsoever about but who have a bunch of very enthusiastic fans who’d probably be happy to tell you all about them!
This is a place to talk about your favorites, share sightings of them around the DC Universe, and bemoan the fact that so many of them are really underutilized. Who knows? Maybe we can do a book club at some point. (OK, this might be a stealth interest-check for an acquired characters book club, but I mostly just want to talk about these characters in general.)
