    Do you think the green hood was a colouring error? It seems likely that someone just got it wrong and nobody bothered to correct them because it wasn't considered that important back then.

    Funny how a lot of the way we see the characters is just a roll of the dice. Some flunky decides this should be that colour and then it becomes part of the lore.

    It's been quite awhile since I read this, but I remember him having a green hood in the '92 Parobeck series. That's the only time I really felt it was done on purpose, as a minor tweak to fit in with Al's new costume, etc as a slight attempt at... Modernisation I guess? It just infuriated me every time I saw it, lol.

    I think I just made a mistake.

    I thought it was Will Payton, but than I recalled that Ted Knight was in the Crisis, and I still own a JSA Special called Last Days of the Justice Society...so he was probably in there to I imagine.
