Deadshot needs a missus.

Or a mister. He and Catman are cute together.

Let the Deadshot/Catman shipping begin! (Or has that already been a big ship item?)

Have those two really shared any significant panel time? I mean, one is associated with Suicide Squad and the other with Secret Six.

Now that you mention it, it doesn't seem like they have had "screen time" together. But it sure feels like they have.

And both are Batman villains.

I'm sure it's possible, given the shared Batman status and the similarities between Secret Six and Suicide Squad (beyond the alliteration). I can't recall any interaction, though.

Catman and Deadshot were on the Secret Six together under Gail Simone - lots of sexual innuendo, lots of shipping!

Aw, man...I SUCK! The memory is faulty, my friends! I guess I had the versions from the New 52-on on my mind, forgetting that the original Gail Simone iteration existed without any Suicide Squad book being published! In my defense it's been a while!

I was doubting my memory there. A previous Secret Six relaunch was the only reason I bought Action Comics Weekly. That and it was a book I could buy in my own town.

I remember Action Weekly. For a while, it was the only place you could get new Green Lantern stories. That seems weird in hindsight!

With 3600 Green Lanterns (before they upped to two per sector), they certainly had enough material for weekly stories!

I'm glad Hal got his own book again in the 90s.

I liked Hal best when he was partly flippant, partly serious. His time with Justice League Europe is a good example.

I enjoyed the Action Weekly GL series pretty well, but I will always remember regretfully that it featured the death of Katma Tui. She's always been one of my favorite GLs.

Same here! Katmas death really was one of the saddest character deaths for me

Katma died well before you were born, I think, Ibby! Did you get to read her stories at some point, or do you get this feeling more from references to her in modern stories?

I got to read some of her stories, Lardy. In fact, I read quite a few of them before I found out she had died... came as quite a shock to me!

Floppies or reprints? It seems to me that Bronze Age GL stories even until the Kyle Raynor era began have been woefully uncollected with exceptions like GL/GA and the Alan Moore stuff.

I didn't realise that was where Katma died. I wonder if I'd stopped reading it by that point. I remember a whiny Hal going round trying to ask his friends for some direction. It was a reprise of all the other stories where whiny Hal needs a sense of direction. smile

Yep, she died in AC Weekly. In fact, it was the first issue in that format: 601. Katma was ringless and was slaughtered by a near-feral Star Sapphire. She deserved a better death than that.

I have an aunt who's a big comics collector, so was able to read some of her originals.

I do have one GL/GA trade!

Yup, I'll have that one. I'll have plenty of time to read it too, now that my faulty memory has forced me to resign from the Legion World pub quiz team >sob<
