Obscurity of DC Presents: Obscure Book Club, Week 48 (February 5-February 11) --- FORGOTTEN HEROES!

Why hello there, @ObscurityofDCClub and other members of the DC Community! Welcome to Week 48 of Obscurity of DC’s Obscure Book Club! This week, we’ll be focusing on…


What We’ll Be Reading: Resurrection Man (1997) — Please only read issues 24-27

Number of Issues: 4

Brief description from wikipedia.com: The Forgotten Heroes are a fictional superhero team in the DC Comics universe. The group is composed of originally unrelated superheroes introduced in DC publications in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Having faded from appearances in DC publications, Marv Wolfman and Gil Kane brought them together in Action Comics #545 (July 1983) as a team that had simply faded from the limelight of their world.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Did you like the team’s origin? Why or why not?
  2. In the second issue, we find out the Forgotten Heroes think Resurrection Man in Immortal Man. Do you think they’re right? Why or why not?
  3. Why do you think Immortal Man and Resurrection Man don’t like each other?
  4. Why do you think Resurrection Man refuses to join Forgotten Heroes?
  5. Who was your favorite member of the Forgotten Heroes? Why?
