Wonder Woman Vs. Black Lightning

Most of you will remember this post where Wonder Woman flew a plane into the WTC. In this one she is defending it from Black Lightning. This is from the August-September issue of 1976, exactly 25 years before 9-11

Who sent the black lighting and why? Wonder Woman is calling on Hera for help, Possibly to beat up her little brother Zeus.Looks like I will be picking up a copy of WW #225 when I get a chance.

I remember watching the bulletins from Ground Zero, but at the time I didn't know there was a comic published in 1981 that went by the same name. This cover shows a couple of buildings falling in the background, while the tin woman obliviously sips tea and takes a drag from a cigarette while a gun is pointed to her head. Oh, and there is an invisible man in the background looking on. Bizarre.

The Tin Woman reminded me muchly of Angelina Jolie in Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow.

I see BLs name = jefferson PIERCE. not only presidential but also 'piercing' as his bolts seem to do.
I noticed then the names of his daughters - one of them has the same name as my brother's wife [ before she married]

cheers

Hello Wise Woman

I just realized that you have the same first initial and last name as Woner Woman. ;) I haven't seen Sky Captain and the world of Tomorrow yet.

I'm glad you picked up on my tip of the hat to the Black Lightning character. I thought about mentioning him in this post, but I held back. Jefferson Pierce is a great character. It's interesting he is named after two American Presidents, the latter one an indirect ancestor of GW.
