So I woulda nailed it if you hadnít screwed up?!?!!!   Cheesy

Exactly ... But ...
 Wink

And how about this one? Any guesses off hand? No way I would have guessed this one.


EDIT - Clue - I thought this first appearance would have been much later than this.
 Smiley

EDit 2 - Okay, that was NOT a clue, just a point of fact. Don't read into that at all. Again, not a clue. I realized I may have you guys thinking about time or something. Uh-Oh, now that is a clue. You can now surmise it has nothing to do with "time"

Since Iíve been lucky twice I was too scared to guess so I looked it up.

Good one!

I'm afraid your both wrong but jedicow's second guess is in the right field.

Yep, and both of you had great guesses, and not to scare you but this is one that ya just never would expect to be so ... old, or at least I did not at least.

I will wait one or two more days to see if Wringer or anyone else wants to throw a guess out there.

MAN!! That is a good one.

But not that one either.

Looks like no-one is going to get lucky enough this week. I mean, let's be honest, these things are 99/99999% luck, especially when you go this far back in time, unless you are just a huge fan of whatever first appearance may be showing up.

And heck, lets end this one early and get to the 1st appearance for this week ....


=

I can't express how shocked I am that this characters first appearance was this far back.
Crazy.
On to another one ... a special edition!!! Happy guessing everyone!!

As for your current Avatar I'm racking my brain.  It has to be an old villain.  Could be someone working for the Nazi's but I can't think of anyone off the top of my head that could be German.  So I'm going to say the cover is a red herring and the story is probably in Metropolis.

I'm just going to take a HUGE shot in the dark and say......

The Toyman.  My first guess was Metallo thinking he might have something to do with the war.  But ultimately I went with the Toyman.

.... and really for no reason other than he's probably been around a long time.

I just followed your lead on that one.  Cool Cool

I almost added "I don't want to leave you guys hanging ..."

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

But as for this guess ... a nice try  Smiley. And for the other guys just remember, I did say I may start adding some twists in  Wink, not that that makes it easier  Cheesy

Okay, no more guesses so ... Calling this one done.


As I said, was going to start throwing in twists from time to time
 Grin


=

Yes, DC's first appearance of the completely stolen, DOC SAVAGE'S Fortress of Solitude  Angry

 
EDIT -

From 1942



From 1938



Just saying!!!
 Grin
(And yes, I stole the more current, Bantam cover for the Doc Savage image, as the original doesn't have the same, snotty little shit, impact that I was looking for)
 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

EDIT 2 - Okay, it was bugging me. Here is the original, so I can add OCD to the "snotty little shit" description of me.
