Today's stories are from Black Cat 24 (August 1950), Blue Beetle 58 (April 1950) and Lady Luck 88 (April 1950). As usual, my mindless ramblings follow the stories.
"Superheroes died-out after World War II". That's the commonly held belief by "The Experts". On the other hand, WWII ended in 1945 while many heroess continued to be published for years afterward. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Arrow, Fawcett's Captain Marvel & the rest of the Marvel Family, Plastic Man, Doll Man, Lev Gleason's Daredevil, Captain America, Lady Luck, Blue Beetle, Black Cat and Air Boy all made it to at least 1950. Plenty of others lasted until 1949, like Black Terror, Sub-Mariner, Skyman, The Face, The Target (who also had some stories reprinted in 1950-51), The Human Torch, The Shield and Quicksilver. If you consider four years later to be "after World War II", then make sure you add phrases like "Image Comics was founded after the fall of the Roman Empire", "Malibu Comics was sold to Marvel after the first Moon Landing" and "after the invention of the wheel, Jack Kirby started work on his 'New Gods' books". I guess as long as you keep the timeline straight & people don't know better, who really cares how much time passes between one event and another?
