So if told you I was going to talk about a comic book character who was:
- a millionaire
|The fruits of evil are FUNGIBLE.|
- man of mystery
|That's a brave camera-person who took that.|
- who's a dramatic gun-toting vigilante
- inspired by the death of a loved one
|That bear saved his life.|
- who wears a garish outfit
|Imagine laying that out on your bed and saying,|
"Yes! THIS is the look I'm going for today!"
- drives a signature thematic vehicle
|"Red Rover, Red Rover, let Wild Dog run over."|
- has cozy relationships with authority figures
|That's just the police guy; there's also a reporter guy and a spy guy.|
- and fights colorful and semi-deranged foes
- in a city of his own
- who kills without compunction
|Eleazar P. Wilddog's portrait approves:|
"No decent man would wear that shirt."
- and quips for the reader's amusement while doing so,
|Wild Dog turns vigilanteism into performance art.|
you would, I should think, assume that I was going to discuss a Golden Age hero. If so, then, congratulations; you've come to the same conclusion I have:
Wild Dog is a Golden Age hero who just happens to have been created in 1987.
