Two Unique Origins From One Comic
Sensation Comics is just awesome, featuring the weird and wonderful Wonder Woman’s origin. However, that’s not the best bit.
Let’s start with Terry Sloan, all around amazing human being. He’s genius smart, an amazing athlete, and all around swell human being.
What makes him become a super hero?
Yes, that’s right – he sets out to kill himself, and gets “sidetracked” by a woman trying to kill herself (and note how she’s “a little fool” for doing what he’s planning to do).
One adventure later and he’s fighting crime as Mr. Terrific. In fairness to Terry, a bunch of kids name him that. So hey, improvement on Reed Richards right there.
Our second origin is that of Ted Grant, aka Wildcat. Framed for murder in the ring (well, more like duped into committing), he’s trying to find a way to clear his name when inspiration strikes!
“Hmmm…now how can we get our story to the third act…”
“I’m stumped too!”
“Hey, what if we just have him read it in a funny book?”
To be fair, this is Ma Hunkle’s “Red Tornado” origin too, but she was a funny strip character. We’re supposed to take Wildcat seriously.
Another surge in hits yesterday. Never underestimate the popularity of the Gay Ghost
