      I couldn't help but smile when Birdman and Avenger appeared (also loved the line that his voice carries as the voice-actor certainly did have a great, strong voice).

    I did notice after a while that all three characters featured in the issue were the ones who received latter-day revivals.

    I think the group featured on the cover is pretty comprehensive; is there anyone missing?


The cover is missing Shazzan, though he appears in one panel of the interior comic.
Shazzan

Entirely missing (even from the interior) are Samson and Goliath.
Samson and Goliath

Moby Dick was missing also, though maybe in some people's minds he was represented by Mightor.





I imagine Moby Dick would be a little difficult to work in due to his milieu and the fact he's a talking whale is a bit of a different level of reality (although, if they can work in the Impossibles...).

Not too eager to see Shazzan as his whole point seemed to be a deus ex machina character, there was no real tension to his stories as his magic seemed able to do anything, it had the appeal of a cat playing with a caught mouse. The ending being a foregone conclusion, the only question as to how creative he could be in dragging it out to fill the time slot.

We're missing all the Scooby Doo riffs, though it would be cool to see a serious take on the Blue Falcon here as a competent and respected superhero (just leave Dynomutt at home, even as a kid I never cared for him, more useless than Robin).

Also no hint of Devlin which was a fairly straight forward serious adventure/mystery cartoon, one of my favorites as a kid because of that.
