Hey guys,

My Who’s Who XVIII cover has an all-flesh colored Plas neck too. Not sure if you guys have a defective issue or not!

The guy in the Ivy is Professor Ivo, I believe. Two Batman villains, ya know.

Phantom Girl – Sorry Shag, not getting the hate. PG looks like a very attractive girl-next-door type. Sort of a super-hero Phoebe Kates. Which is how I always took her, anyway.

Phantom Lady- What more can one say? It’s Dave Stevens! Moving on.

Phantom Stranger – Perfection.

Pig-Iron – I remember when they covered his origin in the Captain Carrot book. It seemed weird to think DC published cartoon-like characters at one time. I assumed he had actually BEEN a cartoon character!

Plastic Man – The most static pose of Plas...EVER. Why is he pointing at his toe? Is he trying to prove he can wiggle it. Good for him.
Power Girl – It’s okay. Not as cartoony as Staton would get in the late 80s/early 90s.

Pow-Wow Smith- In his appearance on JLU, the character considered “Pow-Wow” to be a racist nickname.

Prince Ra-Man – I have to admit I agree with you on Giella, Rob. I never was a fan of his inks. I don’t think he was as bad as Colletta COULD be, but I do think he didn’t have the flair that Colletta COULD bring, if he wasn’t rushing and erasing lines. I just never cared for his “soft” approach.

Professor Hugo Strange – Cowan drew Strange in Batman Annual #10 around this time.

Prof. Milo – Belive it or not, he made it on to several episodes of Batman: The Animated Series, voiced by Treat Williams! Len Wein dug him up from his obscure 50s appearances in the 70s. Neal Adams drew his appearance in Batman #255, which was adapted into a BTAS episode. The Batman/Starman of 1957 WAS the inspiration for the “Starman of 1951” in Robinson’s run.

Power Girl DID first learn about her Atlantean retcon origin in that Secret Origins issue.

Thanks for making Monday tolerable, fellas!
