[SPEED DEMON #1, APR 1996] [AMALGAM TRADING CARD #81]

MAY The Golden Age Dark Claw debuts in New Gotham. The Golden Age Dark Claw had detachable claws in his earlier appearances, unlike the Modern Dark Claw. This has led to speculation that the first Dark Claw was a different man altogether, or that he is no longer part of continuity (There is no evidence to support the notion that the Amalgam Universe retroactively lost any Golden Age heroes). It is also possible, however, that the man known today as Logan Wayne defended New Gotham as Dark Claw long before his stint with the Canadian Secret Service or his involvement in the Weapon X Project.

Moon Spirit begins investigating crimes. Moon Spirit (who is never named in the story), contains no DC Comics element. The publication by DC of Will Eisner's The Spirit collections, as well as the publication of Spirit material by Quality (a comics publisher later purchased by DC), mark the only grounds for including this character as possibly existing in the Amalgam Universe. It is more likely that he is from a variation of the Amalgam Universe, possibly Universe-2. Date based on first appearance of the Spirit. [MARC SPECTOR: MOON KNIGHT #42 (MARVEL), SEP 1992]

Red Hawk becomes an active crimefighter. Character unnamed in comics, but appears as one of the Ashkani, heroes cut down before their time, that exists in Niles Cable's future. [EXCITING X-PATROL #1, JUN 1997] See Appendix 1 for more details

1941 --

A millionaire playboy takes up crime-fighting as Moon Man. He only comes out on nights when the moon is full, and he is "hunted alike by the underworld and the police." This character is from Timely Comics (Marvel), although he is not canonical to Marvel continuity. He is included here because he is an obvious homage/tribute/rip-off of Batman, and, more importantly, serves as a precedent/predecessor for the Silver Age Moon Man who appears in MARC SPECTOR: MOON KNIGHT #42. [MYSTIC COMICS #5 (TIMELY), APR 1941]

All-Star Winners Squad founded by Human Lantern, Aqua-Mariner, & the Whiz. [SUPER SOLDIER: MAN OF WAR #1, JUN 1997]

MARCH Super-Soldier debuts. "They injected the formula into a 4-F volunteer -- one whose name I cannot here reveal -- and exposed him to a massive jolt of Solar Radiation. Given what they knew of the alien cells, the scientists had some clue as to how this might affect the test subject -- but no one expected him to be granted powers and abilities -- so far beyond those of mortal men." Excerpt taken from the journals of James Olsen. [SUPER SOLDIER #1, APR 1996] [AMALGAM CLASSICS: POWER BLAST #1 of 9] See Appendix 3 for more details

Golden Age American Girl becomes Super-Soldier's sidekick. [AMALGAM CLASSICS: POWER BLAST #9 of 9]

Johnny Quicksilver becomes an active crimefighter. Character unnamed in comics, but appears as one of the Ashkani, heroes cut down before their time, that exists in Niles Cable's future. [EXCITING X-PATROL #1, JUN 1997] See Appendix 1 for more details

FEBRUARY Super-Soldier attends a meeting of the All-Star Winners Squadron, along with the Human Lantern, Aqua-Mariner, American Bell, the Whiz, and Brooklyn Barnes of the Young Commandos. He leaves early to attend to a secret mission, which takes him and Jimmy Olson across the Atlantic Ocean to England, where he meets with Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The next day, Super-Soldier, Mademoiselle Peggy, and Sgt. Rock's Howling Commandos defeat Major Zemo's War Wheel at Castle Zemo deep in the heart of Nazi Europe. Major Zemo and Lex Luthor escape with an alien rocket, a sample of the Kansas Lode alloy, and the schematics for Ultra-Metallo. [SUPER SOLDIER: MAN OF WAR #1, JUN 1997]

MARCH Super-Soldier intercepts Ultra-Metallo, a mighty robot powered by Green K, over the North Atlantic as it heads for Washington D.C. Both fall into the ocean during the battle and are lost, presumed destroyed.

MoonMan, the 'Crescent Crusader' and MoonBoy, the 'Crater Kid', defend Cosmopolis from the extra-dimensional Moon Shade. When Moon Shade tries to drain MoonMan's lifeforce, the demon is destroyed by Moon Knight from the Marvel Universe. Although this story took place in the Modern Age for Moon Knight, it is the nature of the reality he visited that justifies placing it in the Silver Age, as Cosmopolis' MoonMan is obviously based on the 1960s incarnation of Gotham City's Bat-Man in DC Comics and the Bat-Man television series featuring Adam West. While there is no evidence to confirm what reality this story takes place in (other than being a Cross-Time of the Marvel Universe), the combination of DC and Marvel characters suggests that it is at least a variation of the Amalgam Universe.

1973 --

Shang Prez, Master of Kung-Fu, is sworn in as the first 18-year-old to become President of the United States, as well as the first Asian-American to hold that office. His term is short lived, as an unknown opponent cuts him down before his time and he becomes one of the Ashkani. The only name given is Prez: Master of Kung-Fu. Shang Prez, which would translate as "Rising and Advancing of the President," was hypothesized by Mikel Midnight. Dates inferred from DC references. [EXCITING X-PATROL #1, JUN 1997]

The giant reptile-simian hybrid KongZilla rampages across the American City of Megalopolis, and the U. S. Army is helpless to oppose the monster. KongZilla only leaves after capturing a local citizen it has fallen in love with; newlywed Irving Korn. This story appeared in the humor/horror/anthology series, PLOP!, which was hosted by Caine, Abel, and the old witch Eve. It is included here as it shows an amalgam of two popular movie monsters, and no evidence exists to suggest that the story belongs in any other reality. [PLOP! #1 (DC), SEP 1973]
