This Month in DC History

The Martian Manhunter was beamed to Earth and accidentally induce heart attacks to everyone he met in 1955. Ok it was just the one doctor and when your performing experiments dealing with teleportation you shouldn’t get all stressed out because it works and brings a shapeshifting alien to your doorstep. So J’onn J’onzz took the appearance of a dead detective and began his conquest of Earth’s Oreo supply, and he fought crime occasionally.

What else happened in 1955?

  • All the cool superheroes got dogs when Krypto and Ace, the Bat-Hound, was introduced. And all Aquaman got was a catfish… I’m so sorry for that one, it was too easy.
  • The Brave and The Bold began as a hodgepodge of storytelling. In 1963 the Martian Manhunter teamed up with Green Arrow introducing the team-up aspect that the title became. In 1966 Batman made his first appearance in the title and hoarded all the teaming up, didn’t his mother teach him to shar… oh yeah, guess not.
  • Superboy (meaning Superman as a boy) was forced to leave Smallville to save the Kents who were being threaten by a criminal on death row. Superboy flew off with people pretending to be his Kryptonian  parents, Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van, but Clark came back once the criminal had been executed. The story was told across two issues, which was rare at the time. Can you even imagine what it would be like if the story ended in the same issue it started in?

Have A Happy Thanksgiving
