I'm just trying to think of some other canon comic-book characters that would also fall into the category of having originated in a cartoon...
Off the top of my head, I come up with Livewire, Lock-Up, and Rene Montoya...are there others? (I'm assuming so.)
These are the first Wonder Twins figures ever made, as far as I know. Beforehand, all the rights were tied up.
You are probably right but I swear I saw a box set in a Previews catalog a few years back. I wasn't a collector, but I just recall seeing a picture of Wonder Twins in the catalog.
What about Harvey Bullock - wasn't he a B:TAS origninal character? I think they put him in The Dark Knight ... or at least I thought the cop in the interrogation room with Joker was Bullock.
Actually, the guy in TDK is named Stephens (played by Keith Somebody -or-other, can't remember how to spell the name.) He actually survives the movie - would have been really cool if he was Bullock, but unfortunately not.
Was Morph, from the old X-Men cartoon, ever "Legitimized" in the comics? I know there was an Age of Apocalypse Morph, but was he ever in the main continuity?
Technically Morph is Changeling, so yeah, he's been in the regular Earth-616 books. He's appeared as Morph in the Exiles, though.
Just missed a case of DCUC Wave 7.1 at Wal-Mart. They just put out a case of Wave 6 on Monday! All they had left from the new case were the Batman/GL repacks.
They did at least get a big restock on Infinite Heroes though - finally saw Wonder Woman, Sinestro, Ray Palmer Atom, Power Girl, and the single carded Starfire, Wonder Girl & orange shirt Question.
More clarification for 2009 - Matty's facebook page has included the presentation slides from NYCC - DCUC will have 4 main waves & 1 Wal-Mart wave this year. (Waves 7-11)
So now we just need the rest of the Wal-Mart wave 10 lineup and the Wave 11 list. Of course, there's always the rumored listings in the Wal-Mart computer from a while back-many of which turned out to be on the $$$ for Waves 7&8....
The Golden Age version was an ape named Giganta. Professor Zool artificially evolved her into a woman with great strength.
Man-Bat is confirmed for Wave 10, and Question for Wave 11, so far, so it looks like if those entries in the WM computers are correct, it would be Wave 11.
It was also brought up at the convention that Manbat is just the beginning of reviving some of the old DCSH figures. Matty said that the Black and Gray Batman is a personal favorite and it does need to resurface along with Catwoman and Two face.
Eh, I just wish they'd do a new Catwoman altogether... the one they've already released is pretty lackluster.
I think the Catwoman is pretty decent for a figure. It is her current DC Costume, but I've always wanted a purple variant. Or maybe the Mortal Kombat version.
That'd be one way to get people to buy the stands off of Mattycollector!
Seriously, while the boobage would be gigantic, I personally just think the costume itself is much sexier than the current one. I've never been a fan of the goggles, and I liked that her hair used to flow out the back.....
Plus on the cost side, there wouldn't have to be hardly any detail sculpted on that costume, as it's literally just a skin-tight bodysuit, so there'd be no buckles, zippers, etc, for the 4H to deal with. Not to mention there are a TON of other females that could use it.
