Here's the latest entry in my A-Z Challenge. My theme (as you ought to know by now if you've been paying attention) is "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."
Iron Munro, who debuted in 1941 in Army & Navy Comics #1, from Street & Smith, has been described as "a strapping young lad, a two-fisted adventurer of the future who flies from planet to planet doing good and fighting against evil." Whatta guy, huh?
Today's Iron Munro is a DC character, first appearing in Young All-Stars #1, in 1987. When DC changed their continuity and established that Superman never existed during the 1940s -- don't ask -- Iron Munro was created so they'd have someone similar around back then!
Thanks for your time.
