Superman: Up In The Sky #3
In 1918, at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated. After four years of bitter war, an armistice was signed between the Allies and the Germans. The “war to end all wars” was over.
November 11th was set aside in the United States to remember the sacrifices that men and women made during World War I in order to ensure a lasting peace.
There is no shortage of superheroes in DC Comics, and many have even served their country in real-world wars, from World War II through the present day. You can read about just a few of them in our news article Super Valor: 5 Military Vet Super Heroes.
However, DC’s veterans go beyond the major super heroes- we also have well-known characters that live and breathe being soldiers. Characters like Sgt. Rock, Blackhawk, The Boy Commandos, Hop Harrigan, and more honor their real-life brothers and sisters in arms in every issue.
For all of them, their commitment to upholding the virtues of their country is paramount, and their sense of duty remains strong. Please join all of us here at DC Universe in thanking the true heroes today for their service and sacrifice. To all members of the U.S. Military, past and present, we salute you.
We want to know: Which DC characters would you include among the heroes we highlighted?
Let us know if you served, or know someone who served, so we can honor them as well.
