Yes, I exagerate, but really, its pretty shocking just how dated some classic comic books get, not just in writing style and feel, but even the writing. Even if you ignore the unsettingly outdated gender and racial roles, which were still liberal compared to the decade before, most superhero, and other comics too for that matter, of the Silver Age are almost unerving to read today.
And you know comic book history! (SWOON!)
Well sort of, its pretty selective. Most Golden Age and Silver Age stuff just turned into random nonsense after a while.
There's a really good throwback episode of The Justice League where a couple of em (including the black green lantern John Stewart) go to a different dimention with super old timey heroes. One of them, no joke, turns to GL at one point and says "You're a credit to your people, son!" I was basically dying on the floor.
Yeah, thats the Justice Squadron episode, all the characters were pastiches of the original Justice Society. Catman was Wildcat, The Streak was the original Flash, and so on.
I really wish the Justice Society actually showed up in the show. Mostly the original GL and Flash, but at least I got a Captain Marvel episode.
Wildcat did show up in one episode. Captain Marvel was never a member of the Justie Society, during the Golden Age of Comics, he wasnt owned by DC, and even after they bought the rights, he was part of his own continuty for decades.
