There is some complaint by Dick Grayson to Batman in Grayson: Futures End and he does state something similar to what is said above in Titans. Batman also gives a nice explanation for why Robin should wear bright clothing rather than the dark that he wears. Click image to enlarge. Robin: It's a little, I don't know, bright. I mean, you get to wear ...

Adam Strange: human archeologist from Earth accidentally teleported to an alien planet where he eventually became the love interest of the daughter of the scientist responsible for his teleportation in the first place.

Most of the existing answers cover this. In general though, there are a few similarities across versions: There was already an existing "bat's cave" on the Wayne manor grounds. Originally, this was just a space underneath the manor where Bruce could operate in secret. Since Wayne Manor was on the side of a hill on several dozen acres of private property, ...

The page shown above covers the origins of Robin, but not the costume or name, and the costume raised eyebrows from day one, so it was explained in a later issue. But Robin's costume, as well as his nom-de-guerre, come from a fictional (I think) organization called the Sea Robins. It was supposedly a marine-oriented boys group, like an ocean-going Boy Scouts,...

The evidence you give to suggest a link is extremely weak, so I have no qualms in saying no, it probably was not an influence on the creation of the show. Doctor Who was, and still is, relentlessly British, so it seems unlikely that an American comic could have been a major influence on it. True, Sydney Newman, the Canadian-born TV executive who suggested ...

In the movie Joker, he has a very mixed handedness, writing left-handed then shooting the guys on the train left-handed. When he handles the scissors and stabs up his former coworker with them he uses his right hand, as well as when he smokes cigarettes he uses his right hand and seems to looks more natural while using his right, in my opinion. I clicked on ...

It looks as if it is not clear what exactly the Great Disaster was. According to Wikipedia (my highlights), The 1975–1977 Hercules Unbound series and the OMAC backup stories in Kamandi and The Warlord tie OMAC to both the storyline of Hercules Unbound and to the Atomic Knights, indicating that the Great Disaster was the atomic war of 1986 that ...
