    And some of us were reading comic books before the Golden Age Mr. Terrific was killed off . . .

    I first saw the Golden Age Mister Terrific in reprints in the 1970's.

    My first and absolute favorite is Michael Holt, especially recently with him being a big part of the multiverse/sci-fi adventurer.

    Terry was my introduction through the JSA.
    Michael was the character that caught my imagination though.

    Michael Holt.

    I can't recall when i was first exposed to him but the moment the character made the greatest impression upon me was when i saw him in a toy line. I found the characters name corny and the characters design to be interesting and slightly off putting initially but the characters background and potential made me over look that issue. I've come to like the character now.

    I've said this before but some characters are designed in such a way that if they *don't* succeed it's clearly the fault of the writers and IP owners (Booster Gold and Cyborg come to mind) and other characters, like Mister Terrific and Animal Man, really have no reason to be as compelling as they are save for a writer with a vision.
    Don't complain. Create.

    He definitely played an important role on the cover.
