This month in DC History
Amanda Waller was introduced in the miniseries called Legends in 1986. Like most events it had it’s fair share of tie-in issues and set up revamps of the Suicide Squad and the Justice League. “The Wall” not only lost her husband but two of her five children the other three she sent to survive on their own once they had gotten their education. According to my book, her only super power is her steel will, wonder why the Guardians never sent her a green ring.
What else was going on in 1986?
- A little book called Watchmen was published. It had something to do with nitty gritty superheroes. I don’t think many people remember it.
- Aquaman wore his blue camouflaged suit forcing his enemies to say “Where did he go? I can’t see him through all this water. Wait I think I’m drowning.”
- The story Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? was written detailing the last days of Superman. Not only did his secret identity get revealed but he married Lois. Lex and Brainiac became one as well but they weren’t behind Superman’s troubles but that crazy inter-dimensional imp Mr. Mxyzptlk.
