DC Comics, 1943...

Wouldn't a comic featuring a Norseman with an enchanted weapon...

THE VIKING COMMANDO




...a shield-slingin' superhero...

THE GUARDIAN



....a genius housed within a robotic body...

ROBOTMAN



...a shrinking woman...

DOLL GIRL



...a man who "talks" to insects...

THE RED BEE



...and a super-strong, hulking monster, dressed in tatters...

SOLOMON GRUNDY




... have made for some pretty interesting reading?

In The DC Universe, a team like this probably wouldn't "register." Elsewhere, though...

"Wouldn't register", my ass! I say make it the new Doom Patrol!

You can never get enough Red Bee.

I'd by that comic. Hell, it'd be more interesting than New Avengers.

Devon said...

I view it more as The "Old" Avengers.

D'oh.

Well, okay, that took a bit to get. I blame my recent re-reading of Armageddon 2001...
