As everyone (hopefully) expected, we’re wrapping up our S.T.R.I.P.E. Week with a look at the big guy. STRIPE & ‘comic accuracy’ don’t belong anywhere near each other in a sentence, but Mattel and the Four Horsemen pulled off a feat, a fantastically inaccurate figure that’s fantastic at the same time.
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week has me taking another trip down memory lane today with a look at the Golden Age Atom! He’s not my favorite Justice Society of America member, but as a JSA Fan that’s been waiting forever for a good Al Pratt figure, I’m happy to report this one doesn’t disappoint.
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week rolls on, but today I’m jumping ahead, oh… a few decades to a young member of the modern JSA. One of the things I enjoyed most about the late 90s DC offerings was the return of the Justice Society of America and its newest member Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl.
While I enjoyed DCUC18, I’m still of the mindset that DCUC19, with its JSA theme, was a bastion of greatness in an otherwise dull year for DC Classics. Sandwiched between a wave of Geoff Johns’ Rainbow Deputies and Brightest Day figures, the classic characters featured here were a 2011 bright spot.
