Interestingly, my last several reviews have all dealt with the concept of the legacy hero (both Nite-Owl and Jay Garrick are the progenitors of an identity, while Tommy Watts is dealing with the spectre of his dead brother.) It got me thinking about the nature of the “Legacy Hero,” which then made me realize that the most successful ones have all been returned to their secondary roles. Even Dick Grayson’s much-publicized step up to the big cape has been reverted, which says something about permanance in comics (though that’s probably a different MS-QOTD.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is the Sensational Character Find of 1940, asking:
Which Legacy Hero should be allowed (or should have CONTINUED to be) in the big leagues?
