:stargirl: :stargirl: The New Golden Age Discussion Thread (SPOILERS) :stargirl: :stargirl:

DC’s pulp division, Spicy Publications, later Culture, had a female character called Olga, the Girl with the X-Ray eyes, who is believed to be one of the major influences on Siegel and Shuster when they created Superman. She may also have been a major influence on Wonder Woman. While I didn’t learn about these characters until years after the Crisis ended; the character had fallen into the Public Domain by 1985 and I believe she could have been easily substituted for Fury post crisis. Along with her fellow pulp mates, Jim Anthony, A Doc Savage/Hugo Danner analogue, and Nick Turner: Hollywood Detective, who could easily be tweaked as the Batman stand-in.

Very cool! Also, after reading up on her backstory, very bizarre!

Issue 1 comes out tomorrow, so issue 7 should come out… never since Sandman is only supposed to be 6 issues.

Issue 1 really reminds me of The Golden Age. If not for the credits I would have guessed Robinson wrote it.

Just read the preview for The Flash miniseries, and we’ve got another timeline hiccup incoming: Justice Society #6 set Judy’s vanishing date as 8/12/1962. The preview shows Judy working alongside Jay in 1963. That’s the second bit of date confusion linked with Judy within her first year as a character. Get it together, DC.

Robin sabotaged your timeline.

Barry’s hair is longer and blonde. Not to mention Robin is not ruining the space-time continuum in this picture.

Alan Scott: Green Lantern really did a deep dive in issue one. Originally, Alan’s last name was Ladd but DC quickly changed it because there was a popular actor by that name. Now i see his lover was Johnny Ladd.

Lots of Stargirl and a certain lost child (other than Judy) in today’s Flash issue. I think there is also a reference to the Thinker in today’s issue.
