This Month in DC History
The Twins of the Starheart, Jade and Obsidian were introduced in 1983. With their father, Alan Scott, being constantly exposed to magical energies gave them both metahuman powers. Being denied membership in the JSA, they started their own club, Infinity, Inc. So take that, JSA.
What else happened in 1983 (besides me being born)?
- Batman said “piss off” and flipped the bird to the JLA starting his own team The Outsiders. The group then spent several months trying to hold meetings without being interrupted by hikers… cause they met outside… get it?
- With his new team, The Outsiders, Batman no longer had the time to pal around with a single other superhero causing The Brave and The Bold series to end. The last paring was Batman from Earth-1 and Batman from Earth-2, and both fought over who could brood the best.
- A year of introductions, Killer Croc was introduced to make Gotham’s Sewer workers nervous, while Jason Todd got an origin story that was identical to Dick Grayson’s origin, cause everyone loves an orphan from the circus… except clowns with crowbars.
(Sorry, I know there is more to DC than Batman but these were the most interesting things that happened that year.)
