This Month in DC History
DC cornered the market on death while trapezing, by introducing Deadman in 1967. While Boston Brand got shot by a sniper and didn’t fall to his death through some malfuntioning trapeze gear, it is believed that people in the DCU brought their children to the circus to keep them from thinking about running way.

What else was going on in 1967?

  • The question “Who’s faster The Flash or Superman?” was asked. The race ended without conclusion given it was hard to tell the outcome. This also the argument on playgrounds to be unresolved as well.
  • Ted Kord got his own title which was short lived. However the first issued also introduced that blank faced detective, The Question.
  • Black Manta was also introduced in Aquaman 35. Although it was his first issue, Aquaman considered him to be one of his fiercest enemies securing his seat in the Legion of Doom over the sea king’s half brother, Ocean Master. Ocean Master was pissed.
