Though not the longest-lived comics company of the Golden Age, Quality Comics output proves that the company’s moniker wasn’t just a clever name. With the likes of Uncle Sam, The Phantom Lady and Black Condor still rattling around the DC Universe, their presence is still felt today. Of course, their greatest alumnus is the stretching adventurer Eel O’Brien, known to the world as Plastic Man! He’s not on this list, but now I bet you’re all wondering who is… Welcome to Ten Things!
Chances are, if you’ve eaten anything in the U.S. within the last decade it has been genetically modified in some way. How that affects you will differ person to person but it couldn’t mean the end of the world right? Wildfire #1 seems to think so and your review waits after the jump!

Could I give the likes of Chemical King or Monstress, with their short tenures, the same kind of gravitas that I hope to impart to Mon-El
Or – “The Fair Witch Project.” The Legion of Super-Heroes covers a lot of different takes on heroism, but the one thing that they all seem to share is the affinity for science.Â From the “ultra-energy” that imbues Jo Nah, to Wildfire‘s transformation to pure antimatter, to the accident that empowered Lighting Lass and her brother, theÂ vagaries of scienceÂ (or at least the strange comic book version thereof) have served as the origin of many Legionnaires.Â Indeed, with the bright and shiny future setting, that’s as it should be.Â So today’s Historical subject is an anomaly from the get-go, holding the
