When you care enough to send the obscure.

I got some vintage DC Superhero Valentines (from 1982) for Valentine's Day. I created the above image from one of them. Below are others...

Pretty recognizable characters, huh? Can anyone out there explain Mister You-make-me-feel-like-a-hero? We don't even get a power-related pun to go with him!

Is it some type of Thanagarian lingerie perhaps?

Oh! Thank you, Jamdin!

I'm mostly Super Friends illiterate, sadly. I thought it was some sort of revamped Hawkman...

This is the second post in a row where a reader has come to my rescue. I love it.

(Maybe my next post should ask about the meaning of life...)

That Supergirl-Batgirl one cracks me up. Surely someone at the company must've realized what they were implying...?

There is even a figure of this guy for 2011 http://www.itsalltrue.net/resources/dcimages/exp/2011/18dor.jpg

and indeed he does look like a revamped Hawkman too me too.

I think we can share some comics! I've got a similar blog and it'd be nice if you can bring me your vintages, specially if we are talking about superheros.
