I liked Strange Visitor. Too bad she was an assertive, fun loving female in a DC comic.
When i turn into a being of pure electricity, I too will have a costume with arrows pointing to my crotch. there is no other possibility.by the way, who is the electro-being-person-thing on the right, and really what was the whole deal with the electric superman?
Tell ya what's "strange": Her shoulders are exactly the same width as Superman's!
I was working at the University of Missouri's TV station when the Electric Superman storyline was first announced, and I wound up taking my copy of "Previews" to the station so they could scan the image to use next to the anchor's head. There was this weird excitement when I brought it in -- which anchorwoman Lynda Loveland promptly deflated when she said, "He looks like an ice skater!"(ok mostly i just wanted to say i used to know anchorwoman lynda loveland)
I'd never heard of Strange Visitor before I saw this, but I looked up the story and she is a neat character, even if she had one of the most stupid names in the history of comics and an unnecessarily complicated origin. Did she ever appear again after this introduction story?
I didn't care for the idea of Electro Glide in Blue Superman (in large part because it nearly ruined one of the best bits in JLA), but I'm really glad they recycled the costume. It's one of the best designs of the last couple of decades.
O.k., completely off topic, I have to ask if anyone else noticed the line in Lynda Loveland's bio that goes:"I'm a big dog person, both literally and figuratively."Whaaaaa?????
OK, that, I didn't catch when I made the link. My guess is that "both literally and figuratively" was referring only to the word "big"...she's a big fan of dogs and a big person who's a fan of dogs. (She's around 6'1", maybe a little taller.)Let the derailing of the topic continue!
