Title: Avatar of the week
Post by: Perry on December 29, 2018, 11:27:01 AM
Starting now and into the new year I am going to showcase first appearances of my big two favorite villains/non-heroes as my avatar. Be sure to check back weekly (At the very least) to see who makes my list.

It was hard to rank them, so I decided to go by the year they first appeared.

I will do this until I get bored with it, so I am interested in seeing how far I can get. ;D

Without looking it up, did anyone know this one? I didn't

Right? I had no idea either, I had always thought it was ... something else.  :)

I think we all are surprised by this one. I really thought it as something else, and I thought that for years and years. That is the sad thing.

(Not that sad)
 :D :D :D

The next one is going to be far to easy however.

OK.  i never would have guessed that one.  I had no clue that that's what that was.

Uhhhhh.  The Spectre.  

Well I told ya it was going to be easy.
Good job actually, as you can tell it "mostly" looks like him, it doesn't really scream Spectre
 ;D

Iím just going to take a guess and say Lex Luther.

To be different, I'll say the Daily Planet.

Oh man, I didn't even think about doing something like that!!! Darn it. That would have been cool!!! Next time!!!

Yeah, had to have him and it makes sense being the first major Supe's baddie.
At least it wasn't a "gimmie" like the last one. Kinda hard to make people even begin to think about who it could be when they are literally on the cover.
 :)  :D
And I was surprised to see, so far, with a few more covers in the pic bank, how few times that happens. Of course there are also a few runs of covers that do show the character right up front, but not as many as I thought there would be. At least early on.

That was a total lucky guess on my part.  I almost said Lois Lane but figured she's probably been around since the first issue.  Jimmy Olsen was another thought I had.

I was going to do a hero list at first, but settled on the villian (or non-hero) list as I couldn't decide what my favorite 52 heroes were. 52 non-hero types are a little easier, but still not overly happy with the list I have ... even still the hero list would be changing every other day I think
 :D

 I do like the idea of an ancillary list of characters or, like Jimmy brought to mind, locations (or heck, even objects) so may do that one next time.
 :D

Funny that Lex isn't first on the list like I thought he would be, but going by date he falls in third for me. Spectre made it in as more a force of nature (or Gods wrath) so not a hero. And Namor, while always trying to be around heroes, is anything but one.
 :D
