A rather clever and original idea here but as far as I can tell, it went only as far as these two pages and Super Luck was never heard from again. Too bad.

Bet you didn't know the now late Fidel Castro had been a Marvel character! In 1959 he was a revolutionary and there were hopes he would bring peace to Cuba. Who could have predicted then the Communist demagogue he would become who would oppress and torture his own people and who admitted that he came close to nuking the US in 1962?
My first exposure to Ellery Queen as detective and as author(s) was Peter Lawford's early '70s TV movie, followed by Jim Hutton's fun, star-studded mid-'70s TV series. I was to learn that the character had also appeared in novels, on radio, in movies, in comic books and strips, and on stage. Now nearly a hundred years old, I was actually looking for an Ellery Queen book recently at Half-Price books but they didn't have any and had never heard of his books. Sigh...

A concise but fairly accurate history of motion pictures up until nearly the mid-century point. Note cameo appearances by several characters who have appeared on this blog before including Andy Hardy, Mickey Mouse, King Kong, Charlie Chaplin, Frankenstein's monster, and Douglas Fairbanks.
