    Wow, thank goodness a disheveled Johnny Thunder is there to help tip the balance of power in the heroes’ favor!

  2. My favorite JLA/JSA crossover as a kid, hands-down. Loved how Perez (and Pollard) drew the Earth-Two Superman, and Hourman!


  3. I never noticed this before, but Perez seemed to draw Earth-Two Hawkman’s mask like an armored helmet. It actually reminds me a lot of the New 52 Savage Hawkman’s helmet… and that fills my heart with anguish and despair.

    The Hawkman’s armored helmet appeared firstly in All-Star Comics 72, in the 1970’s. This was the DC we loved!!!!

  5. I had to re-read this three-issue story and I love it: the original FOREVER EVIL except a thousand times better because of a) Conway, b) Perez, c) three issues instead of thirty, and d) Johnny Thunder and Thunderbolt!

    The villains in this story are infinitely more appealing to me than the Crime Syndicate. Killer Frost and Cheetah make a great little duo; they could have been the Harley & Ivy of their era. Conway’s characterization of Floronic Man is awesome in his emotionlessness–a precursor to Paul Dini’s revision of Mister Freeze, perhaps–and Perez’s rendition of Woodrue and Signal Man gives both characters some real credibility.

    As for the Earth-2 baddies, Ragdoll is delightfully creepy and visually outstanding. The Monocle and Psycho Pirate are solid but unremarkable, while Brainwave is just ugghhh… He’s the Red Tornado of this story. I guess I’m happy that Black Canary got “villain counterpart” in The Mist, even though she’d only fought him one other time. It speaks more to her lack of a rogues gallery that Starman’s arch-enemy had to test out his new gaseous state against Dinah.

    Then there’s the mastermind. Super-intelligent apes bent on world conquest have always been a source of joy for me, and while I think of Grodd as the epitome of this type, Ultra-Humanite does a fine job in his place.

    Shag – Was this Killer Frost’s first appearance after the DCCP Firestorm/Superman team-up?
