The Thing and The Seven Soldiers of Victory

I first discovered the Seven Soldiers of Victory with their Silver Age reintroduction in the Pages of Justice League of America. I fondly remember that storyline because it also featured the JSA who and Metamorpho helping the JLA to find the time-lost SSOV. I had never seen so many characters together in one story, it really blew my young mind. As with the JSA, I would love to see some new stories featuring tales of the Seven Soldiers of Victory while they were still in their prime. The last time I saw them in action was the pages of All-Star Squadron, and that was decades ago. Grant Morrison recently revamped the Seven Soldiers concept, and that had some nice moments - but give me the original crew any day!

Classic JLofA #100-102 are my three favorite comic books ever in the entire world . For me, like you, this was my first intro to the JSA and the SSoV.

I keep meaning to pick up the SSoV Archives, but the prices on those books always give me pause.

Great cover!

The modern incarnations of the soldiers were featured in a great episode of Justice League Unlimited. Nathan Fillion was the voice of Vigilante.
