What else happened in 1981?

  • Detective Comics celebrated it’s 500th issue. The issue was filled to the brim with Batman stories, including a story where Batman travels to an alternate Earth to save his alternate parents so that the alternate Bruce Wayne would grow up with them. There were also stories that included Elongated Man and Hawkman.
  • Vixen was introduced in Action Comics #521. She went toe to toe with Superman and proved her heroic intentions as she went up against fur traders in New Delhi. The comic also featured an odd pairing of Aquaman and the Atom.
  • The 1940s were alive when Earth-2 went to war. The Justice Society wasn’t enough against the Axis powers so President Roosevelt formed an even bigger team called the All Star Squadron. The book was unfortunately snuffed out by the Crisis on Infinite Earths some time later.
