Riddle Me This ...

Who's the only DCU character who lives on Earth-Prime?

Julius Schwartz?

Jonathan Miller said...

Only one? Someone's mentioned Julie, but there's also Cary Bates, Elliott S! Maggin....oh, and Superboy, of course...

H said...

Well there was Ultraa, but my memory is he left Earth-Prime, so that's probably not who you're looking for.

Bully said...

You're asking this because Julie is the mysterious mover of the Infinite Crisis, isn't he? He'll pop up halfway through the miniseries and make comics goofy and fun qand original again.

Ambush Bug, too.

I thought the whole point about Earth-Prime was that Superboy would be the only superhero there. Unless you count Clark Kent in Superman: Secret Identity.

You did say "character" and not "hero", and once they appear in a DC Comic they become a DCU character, so the list would include:

Franklin Delano Roosevelt
John F. Kennedy
Ronald Reagan
Peter Lorre
Bob Rozakis
All the aforementioned creators like Julius Schwartz, Cary Bates and Elliot S! Maggin

Scipio said...

Hm. All those characters-- at least the living ones --do satisfy the requirements.

But I'm looking for a STARRING character, not a guest-star.

Jerry Lewis?

Scipio said...

Bingo!

My theory is ...

HE'S behind the Infinite Crisis.

"He wants his world back...!"

Vincent J. Murphy said...

I defnitely don't want to live in Jerry Lewis' world. I'd rather take my chances in the bleak current DC universe.

Marionette said...

I don't think the Jerry Lewis who appeared in his own title is the Earth Prime Jerry Lewis. Apart from anything else he once guest starred Wonder Woman.

Bob Hope had his own DC comic too, ya know.

"HE'S behind the Infinite Crisis."

Nah, he'd be behind "Crisis of Infinite Telethons"

Scipio said...

"Bob Hope had his own DC comic too, ya know."

Indeed! But Bob's not currently living on Earth-Prime, or, for that matter, at all.

totaltoyz said...

I guess they couldn't keep Hope alive.

And, by the way, Elvira starred in her own DC comic, too.

Scipio said...

Oh, she's UNdead!!!!

They should have put Hope in Crisis.

They should have put Hope in Crisis.

Or better yet, Super-Hip!

Ron said...

Yeah, that big inspirational speech to all the assembled superheroes in the satellite before they go out to save the universe? They totally should have brought Hope in to entertain the troops.

"So, how about that Anti-Monitor? What a kisser. That guy's so ugly he makes Phyllis Diller look like Starfire!"

"Hey, I think I see Dr. Occult out there in the audience! Glass of warm milk, Table 2! How many guys do you know who can call the Golden-Age Superman a youngster? I mean, seriously, this guy is so old, his Social Security number is 4!"
