Metamorpho and E-Man



E-Man was another one of those comics that I was aware of through comic magazines, but never seemed to be sold anywhere around me.  I remember liking what I saw though, Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton looked like they were having a blast on the series.  It resurfaced every few years under different publishers, so it certainly had a following.  One of these days I am going to have to catch up with those early issues.

The Charlton issues were the best. I bought the premiere issue for only 27 cents (including sales tax)!

I don't know why I thought of this, but...

E-Man and Metamorpho make for a worthy crossover. Both are characters who aren't just stretchy guys (Plastic Man), but whose powers also have a transformative aspect (Firestorm, Molecule Man) albeit self-directed. Not sure about Metamorpho, I mostly know him as a member of the Outsiders and JL Europe. E-Man, on the other hand, I'm well aware of, and heartily recommend his extended series from First Comics, whose rogues' gallery featured plenty of parodies from X-Men and the A-Team to real-life figures such as Steven Spielberg and L. Ron Hubbard.

(Also, Staton knew how to draw his female lead, Nova Kane, stacked!)

That being said, I figure that this cover is mostly a Metamorpho cover with E-Man placed onto it... JS's artistic style is very specific, so he's easily distinguishable from every other character.

Remember E-Man from First comics, this would be an awesome crossover!

Great stuff.
