Great Moments in Comics History: Justice League of America #92



The answer would be clear, Dick Grayson of Earth-2, if perhaps you took a moment to look in a mirror.

(Thanks to Jeff Reid for the submission!)

    "Listen, kid. I’m the Hawkman. I’m like an intergalactic cop from the past or something. You’re not riding with me. Not with a collar like that."

    "Your mask has a beak."

  2. Jeff Reid (@JeffRReid) says:

    Seeing just how completely hairless Earth-1 Robin is, I’m betting that he’s just wearing a wig.  That or he shaves his chest, his arms, and his legs every day.  In either case, I can see why the JLA doesn’t want to hang out with him.

    Thanks for using my panel, guys!

  3. That’s what happens when you don’t have Batman to iron your suits. He probably never did the laundry as well, the slob.

  4. That costume on the left; oh dear oh dear.

    I’d like to know why the Robin on the right has his shirt torn like that. Sexy Party prehaps?

  5. I never understood the fish scale Robin shorts. So creepy…….

  6. this is disturbing on so many levels

  7. @joshvferrigno I thought they were chain mail, which is still creepy.

  8. Nice, but still not as creepy/weird as what the sidekicks had to endure in Rick Veitch’s The BratPack

  9. Oh, Batman was your mentor? With an outfit like that, I thought maybe it was the kid from Big Daddy.

    (Remember, he was allowed to wear whatever he wanted? And ended up in like tee-shirts and pajama pants or something? He was five and didn’t have any fashion sense? Right? Anyone? Hellooooo? Oh, fuck it.)

  10. If Robin is supposed to be away at college, why does he look 12? Also, that is obviously the costume Dick should be wearing right now.

  11. Abe Lincoln has a very disappointed look on his face, and it’s easy to see why.

  12. Like is this Dick suppose to be Batman in this shot? I know he’s got the R on his costume but why is he dressed like him?

    No wonder Dick was terrible during his first go around.

  13. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    @TNC – It’s the silver age Earth Two Robin. 

  14. He has no abs or nipples. He’s not JLA material. Doing a Spongebob Squarepants routine doesn’t endear him to the team.

  15. @Paul: Thank you for the clarification. You have no idea how confused this made me. lol

    @chlop: He’s Mermaid Man!! Oh my god, Robin is actually Mermaid Man! 🙂

  16. Jeff Reid (@JeffRReid) says:

    @TNC: This panel is from one of those JLA/JSA Earth-1/Earth-2 team ups.  The Earth-2 Dick Grayson had taken over for the retired Earth-2 Bruce Wayne.  He chose to wear this… fairly odd design choice for the new Robin costume.

  17. "if we’ll hide behind this giany penny, Hawkman won’t hear us". And yet they wonder why no one recruits them.

  18. *giant penny

  19. Man, who would WANT to chillaxe with Hawkman anyway?  Between him bitching about how Obama and the democrats are running into the ground and the fact that Kendra hates his hawk-guts and shows it by banging Arsenal every which way to Tuesday, you would never get a word in edgewise.

    Oh, yeah, and Abe Lincoln is one of those inter-dimensional Nexus points.  That dude shows up EVERYWHERE!

  20. The JLA have a haircut policy. No sideburns.

  21. okay that’s strange


  22. They’re hiding behind the penny so Alfred won’t catch them working on their routine. Dropping names to score is cheap.

    "And who do you think that guy was?" "Hawkman" "The Mighty Hawk man, I swear to God, I was there"

  23. I’m glad the gaping-hole-to-expose-chest costume phase in comics was just a fad.
