Today brings us one more letter in April's A-Z Challenge! My theme is "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."
Neon debuted in Hit Comics #1, 1940, from Quality Comics. If I may quote from The Golden Age Heroes Directory -- an invaluable source for SO many of these listings -- Neon "has 'neonic' powers, which boil down to glowing, being able to fly, and shooting bolts of energy from his hands."
Today's Neon is Celeste McCauley, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. She first appeared in DC's Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 4, #6, 1990. Her body is composed of a Green Lantern's emerald energy, and can fly and fire force blasts like a Green Lantern..
Thanks for your time.
