Wonder Woman (1976-1977) – Old Superhero Movies & TV, but not necessarily the good stuff

Stuff I’ve Read, Watched, Done – April 26, 2022
Wow, it’s only been a week and a day since my last catch-all post like this. What’s impressive about this is that on that occasion I wrote about watching the first season of Infinity Train with my daughters.

So then I decided to track down some of those comics and buy them, and journal the experience. I got three of them. The first I wrote about here, and now we’re onto the second: Justice League of America #134.

Favorite Fictional Heroes Countdown–Part 4 (#70-61)
And the countdown to my favourite fictional hero continues. In this instalment, we have three, count ’em, three artificial life forms. And a guy who is mistaken for an artificial life form. And there are four female characters, which is tied for as many as we’ve had in a single list. Two of them are attractive European-accented brunettes, one is an animated Mom, and one is a child from a book.
