Our Lives Together – Superman Overhears the Rest of the DC Universe
by Brian Cronin | February 3, 2015 @ 3:09 PM
In this one, suggestion by reader Jim S., we take a look at another bit I did in an old Comic Book Legends Revealed
where Superman’s hearing is increased to the point where he hears the
rest of the DC Universe, with snippets from over a DOZEN other DC books
that came out that same month!
In issue #10 of John Byrne’s Superman run (released with a cover date
of October 1987), Superman’s powers are acting weird. They are
increasing in power at seemingly random intervals.
What’s fascinating, though, is that the panel where Superman is
hearing all sorts of things is not just a random panel of word balloons,
as you would typically expect. No sir, that panel features ACTUAL
dialogue taken from THIRTEEN other DC comic books released that same
month (I believe the intent was for books that specifically came out
that very week, but I can’t speak to whether it actually worked out that

Four Times a Cheetah
Feb 3, 2015 02:50:01 GMT
Since the first incarnation in the 1940s, the DC Comics villain Cheetah
has been portrayed by four different characters and each have a bone to
pick with Wonder Woman. Priscilla Rich was the first Cheetah, created by
Willima Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter. As the only Golden and Silver
Age Cheetah she was introduced in Wonder Woman #6 in 1943.
Barbara Ann Minerva became the Cheetah in Wonder Woman #7 in
1987. Created by Len Wein and George Pérez this third incarnation was a
British archaeologist. Minerva travels to Africa in search of the tribe
that uses a female guardian with powers of the cheetah. After a group
of marauders kill the guardian and most of her expedition partners she
gets help from the priest, Chuma, the caretaker of the plant god
Urtzkartaga to gain the cheetah’s powers and immortality. Unfortunately,
the powers were meant for a virgin, which Minerva is not, therefore the
powers become part curse and part blessing, causing pain in her human
form and blood-thirsty euphoria in cat form. She comes into contact with
Wonder Woman when she learns that Wonder Woman has the Lasso of Truth.
Minerva tries to steal it first through tricking Wonder Woman then by
attacking her, but the fight ends with Cheetah being shot. Due to her
bruised ego from then on she considers Wonder Woman an enemy.

DC Comics is having a sale on its Wonder Woman digital comics at ComiXology
As you can see from the images below, WONDER WOMAN #2-24 are finally
available in digital. I don't need to tell you that even at a 99 cents
sale, the price is still well above the original 75 cents cover price.
To its credit, there are no advertisements in the digital version.
also very unhappy at ComiXology iPad application, which crashes all the
time (especially on first launch). It's annoying, real comics don't
crash when you open its pages.

Perez. If anyone on this list has either interior pages or covers - or
photocopies of them - please contact me.
Am also looking for the cover art to Amazing Heroes #106, the WW issue.
