L: Lynx


Here's today's entry in the A-Z Challenge. My theme is "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."

The first appearance of The Lynx was in Mystery Men #14, from Fox Features, in 1940. He had no superpowers, and his secret identity was "Jim." Just Jim! Dorky costume, too!

A new Lynx appeared in DC's Robin #179 in 2008. She's a martial artist and weapons expert. That's about all I know, cuz she's so recent... and it may surprise you all to learn that I don't read modern comics. I quit following the new ones over ten years ago!



Thanks for your time.

  1. Even in real life, I find there are people who dress the part but have no superpowers.

  2. The second incarnation of Lynx looks more interesting and feisty than 'Jim'. :)

    1. I'm well known for long posts. I purposely took mercy o n the A to Z people and kept these relatively short.

      Thanks for checking out my blog. I'll return the favor shortly.

    1. I think Jim the Lynx hit a very negative chord with my readers. Love that.

  6. You'd think they could give Jim some type of super power if they went to all the trouble to give him such a stylish costume.

    1. I like the chain-mail effect on his shorts...
