Here's the "T" post for my A-Z Challenge. My theme? My theme, "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."
Does that costumed hero pictured above look a tad familiar? If so, it's probably because his costume resembles the second outfit worn by yesterday's superhero, the Golden Age Sandman! (And they were both published by DC Comics in the 1940s!) Check it out and see what I mean!
Anyway, as the title at the top of the splash panel tells you, that yellow-and-purple-garbed superhero is none other than The Tarantula, a/k/a Jonathan Law (I swear!), who first appeared in Star Spangled Comics #1, 1941
Years later, 1974 to be exact, Marvel Comics introduced a Tarantula of their own, only this guy was a baddie who oh-so-appropriately fought Spider-Man. He first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #134.
Thanks for your time.
