    Don't know if she ever got to play that "get out of hell free card " that Simone eventually gave her?

    Just uses his fists LOL!

    (with a bit of a redesign)

    Another favorite for me from the era (Wesley Dodds) Sandman pretty much another regular dude, just dons a mask and gadget/weapon: grapple and "gas gun" compels villains to tell the truth, or put them to sleep.
    He often took legit gunshot wounds, and would continue the good fighting despite his surmounting injuries.
    Another total self-made badass of the era. How DC doesn't have an ongoing pulp era book for these great golden age characters is beyond me?

    Gotta agree with those who go for the Arrowfam members.

    Likewise, chiming in agreement on Ted Kord and Steve Trevor.

    I'm surprised DC never tried a Steve Trevor headlined book (unless I missed it)

    And no don't mean like this...LOL!


    I mean as an intelligence operative, spy, secret agent, adventurer, etc..

    Edit:
    I see there was a one shot? https://cdn.nexternal.com/dreamland/.../APR170375.jpg

    Wow, that art. Arched back for Diana, open shirt for Steve. Doesn't exactly inspire me to want to open the book. But I actually have read it (with other cover). I don't recall much about it, except the quote used "I've been a lot of things. But I'm known most as one thing in particular. I'm the guy who found paradise...and brought a piece of it back" and him feeling guilty about it and not agreeing with Steve perceiving himself that way. I mean, I remember the fountain of youth bit. But it was not a great story, IMO, or an especially good Steve Trevor. Not the worst ever, either. Just "meh."

    Also don't think the oddfellows really work in the comic that well, based on just this one exposure.

    I thought they were kind of fun. Kind of forced movie synergy, but Seeley made it work as best he could.

    (as well as a JSA ongoing ) DC needs a noir pulp era ongoing for these characters.

    Delilah Tyler (Phantom Lady II)

    Had she lived, I think she could have found a home in one of DC's spy stories, like Checkmate by Greg Rucka.

    Did Arrow's version of Wild Dog ever appear in DCU?

    No he didn't. According to wikipedia, a gang called the Wild Dogs were antagonists in Green Arrow.

    A gang named the Wild Dogs, patterned on Wild Dog, appears in Green Arrow #18 (2017), following DC's The New 52 and DC Rebirth continuity-changing events. They are described as a libertarian militia "inspired by some nut in the Quad Cities" and attack the Native American settlement where Arsenal's old foster family lived. They are swiftly shut down by Green Arrow.

    Yeah they'd be a different character "inspiration".
    I'm asking about the Rene Ramirez specific incarnation.

    Sorry about that. No he didn't.
