a alternate JSA

Postby vatman » Tue Jan 22, 2013 12:56 pm

I Would like to create a retro golden age superhero team based on the JSA using the DC Adventures hero's handbook.

^_^ Feel free to. Some of them may already exist in the H&V books, though.

Of the Heroes in the DCA Heroes' Handbook, Aquaman, Batman, Black Canary, Captain Marvel, Green Arrow, Superman, and Wonder Woman were all created in the Golden Age. Dick Grayson, as Robin, was too.

Martian Manhunter, Barry Allen, and Hal Jordan pretty much were the start of the Silver Age, though the later two were revamps of the Flash and Green Lantern, who had been Jay Garrick and Alan Scott.

Zatanna is the daughter of Golden Age hero Zatara.

Tim Drake, of course, is the modern incarnation of Robin, so agajn ...

Since most of the heroes in the Heroes' Handbook are rooted in the Golden Age, it's mostly a question of establishing who you want.

Also, wasn't there a Golden Age: Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Dr Fate, Dr Mid-Nite and Wildcat?

As I recall, 70+ years ago in All Star Comics, Vol 1, Issue 3 (http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/All-Star_Comics_Vol_1_3) when the JSA first appeared, it was these guys on the cover:

Atom (Al Pratt), H&V1, pg 27
Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson), H&V1, pg 163
Flash (Jay Garrick), H&V1, pg 208
Green Lantern (Alan Scott), H&V1, pg 240
Hawkman (Carter Hall), H&V1, pg 254
Hourman (Rex Tyler), H&V1, pg 266
Sandman (Wesley Dodds), H&V2, pg 157
Spectre (Jim Corrigan), H&V2, pg 189

...It doesn't get much more golden age than that...

Some of them could probably use some minor tweaks to reflect their characters back around WWII, but they're generally pretty close as they are.

Secret Origins Vol 2, Issue 31 (had to look up the issue number :roll: ) back in the late '80s had a nice, post-crisis version by Roy Thomas... and no one does retro-golden age like Roy Thomas. http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Secret_Origins_Vol_2_31

There's also the late '70s version in DC Special, Vol 1, Issue 29 that includes Batman, Doctor Mid-Nite and Superman, but I like I personally prefer the Secret Origins version. http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/DC_Special_Vol_1_29
