This Month in DC History
Arthur Curry, the King of the Sea, was introduced in 1941. He’d spend over two decades as a bachelor before he’d get his Queen Mera in October of 1963 (Sorry I forgot about her last month). His powers included super strength, breathing underwater, the ability to talk to sea life and the ability to be mocked by people with the slightest knowledge of his existence. (He’s still my favorite so Shut Up!)
What else happened in 1941?
- Let’s see who wan’t introduced in 1941? Green Arrow and Speedy were introduced in the same issue Aquaman was introduced in. Jimmy Olsen went from radio to print also in November. Wonder Woman and The Penguin were introduced in December of that year. Thanks DC for introducing all these guys in the same year making this article even harder to write.
- World’s Best Comics issue 1 came out and then changed it’s name to World’s Finest Comics by issue 2. With Superman, Batman, and Robin on the cover, it contained a large array of stories including stories about Punch Parker and Lando, Man of Magic. Yeah I don’t know who they are either. We’ll save that for another article.
- Green Lantern also got his own series while Flash picked up his second entitled All-Flash. The Flash would have had a couple more titles but he messed up the time stream and they ceased to exist.
