The patriotic Captain Atom met his foe Major Force for the first time in 1988. Major Force was the 2nd test subject for the “Captain Atom Project” and was assigned to shadowy government bureaus. He died a lot but always came back. They probably shouldn’t have given superpowers to a guy who was sentence to life for murder. Bad move guys.
What else happened in 1988?
Despite Barbara getting shot in The Killing Joke, Batman cracked a smile in the end of it. Probably from a whiff of Joker’s gas.
Hawk and Dove got their own miniseries but not the boys club of yesteryear since Dove was dead. Dawn Granger took the role of Dove and the five issue series reestablished the pair.
A Death in the Family happened and Jason Todd lost a popularity poll that could only be devised by Jigsaw.
Meeting up on the last Saturday of every month in Falmouth, the Cornwall Graphic Novel Group is a bunch of graphic novel, comics and manga loving peeps who like to read and talk about the genres and what's on offer in Cornwall's libraries. We also just like to geek out. Formerly the Truro Graphic Novel Group.
