Hawkman’s first appearence is not on here.

I am covered from DC 27

.


Wow, his first words express a terrible ability to read people.


I knew it would be an insult, but I thought it would be at Pat.


First words are normally very underwhelming, but there is an exception. It is not from DC but our greatest rival.

I’m going to assume thought balloons don’t count as first words. Because, I seem to think a lot.

Travis Morgan

Five pages into 1st Issue Special #8 I finally speak to say goodbye to my beautiful blackbird.

The Warlord

Page 15 and I first speak as the Warlord (at least in my first appearance in native garb).

Of course it took me a while to learn Skartaran so I couldn’t talk to anyone. :man_shrugging:

He first spoke off panel (appearing? Not appearing?)

His first spoken words within the issue actually showing him.

My top five favorites.


Batman from Year one the first comic batman Comic I owned

It first Batman comic I ever read

The first time reading Catwoman (I view her as an enforcer or a dominatrix and not a pro in year one,)

First comic Catwoman I ever met as I checked out DKR from my middle school library.

Not a word, but I love Doomsday cause he killed the man of steel. I do not like superman, but oddly I like Clark Kent.

I like Carrie Kelley; however, her relationship with DKR batman is confusingly uncomfortable.

The original heroic huntress Helena Wayne’s first words.
