This “Month” in DC History
Cheetah pounced on Wonder Woman’s scene in 1943. Priscilla Rich did not superpowers but did have a knife, the cheetah’s natural tool for taking down gazelles in the wild.
What else happened in 1943?
- Speaking of Blackest Night, Alan Scott first said the Green Lantern Oath for the first time. The Guardians thought it was so catchy that they stole it to enable the charging of their rings. Too bad they didn’t like “My ray strikes the darkest corner, banishing all wickedness!”
- Kryptonite was introduced on the Superman radio show. Thank goodness we found something to bring down Superman, now let’s make sure every villain of his uses it.
- Alfred Pennyworth shows up on American shores wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps as the Wayne’s butler. Intended to be the comic relief, he quickly figured out who Batman and Robin were and caused them headaches as he tried to be the detective. Thankfully, he became much better at taking care of the estate.
