I think one of my first questions in this thread lo those many years ago was asking you to give me the names of all of the DC characters who had featured in movie serials in the 1940s and 1950s.

Well I'm nothing if not consistent, so in honour of the newish DC Cinematic Universe (not that it deserves it in any way so far), please give me the names of the 14 DC/Vertigo properties who have received live-action feature films to date.

That's 13. Does Robin count separately, since he was in the title of Batman and Robin? If so, then he's my 14th.

Well done everyone!

You've got 13 out of the 14 properties. (I included Robin within the Batman property since he didn't have his own stand-alone film.)

The last property might be tricky for some. It's not as well known as many others on the list and I had completely forgotten they'd made a movie about it until I was reminded by Wikipedia.

RANDOM CLUE #1: A regular poster on this board (although not one who's ever posted in this thread as far as I'm aware) was a big fan of this comic (although that might not help since this poster is a big fan of a lot of comics smile ).
RANDOM CLUE #2: As far as I'm aware, the characters in this comic have never appeared outside of their one series.
RANFOM CLUE #3: I bought this comic on the strength of its cover art alone. I had never heard of the artist before this series but they have gone on to be a much bigger name now. (Although, strangely, I have gone on to like their art less, including this earlier work.)

P.S. I never saw the movie but hear it got mixed reviews. Looking at it amongst the others on the list though, it seems totally strange that a pretty-much forgotten minor 00's Vertigo series would be one of the very few that DC has turned into a movie.

Who was the arch-enemy of the Squadron Supreme's Hyperion (their Superman analog), who was an analog of Lex Luthor?

Not quite, but Luthor's baldness is referenced in his backstory.

That's correct - in his case, he blames Hyperion for a condition that made his hair grow excessively, as Luthor had famously turned to evil because he blamed Superboy for his baldness. Also, the MM initials was a reference to the constant LL initials (including Lex Luthor) in Superman's life.

Yours, Myg!

Yeah - I enjoy that whole Squadron Supreme stuff - before it became the tough and gritty stuff

Which villain was the center of Batman and Agent Chase's first case?

Haven't read this issue but I just saw it while flicking through Batman comics at my local shop and on the cover was...

Clayface?

And he's got the answer for both.

I remember when I saw the scene in issue # 3 of the JLA/Avengers book, and recognized the Avengers and JLA images as being from the earlier aborted team-up and I asked Kurt Busiek if the story referred to in that panel was indeed the intended plot of that one, and he answered in the affirmative.

If it makes you feel any better, IB, the two you mentioned were in the panel immediately above that one, which might be what made you think it was them.

During the "Breakdowns" crossover between the JLA and the JLE, Wally West and Ralph Dibny decided to drop in on the Doom Patrol, whose own book was in the surreal Grant Morrison era. Experiencing some of this effect, what great mystery of life did Ralph briefly think he solved?
