Wonder Woman and The Beatles



There isn't a time in my life that I don't remember listening to the Beatles.  My parents and older siblings would play their music and I grew up loving it.  I was amazed at how in their relatively short career together they were able to repeatedly reinvent themselves and their sound. In my mind, they have yet to be surpassed.

The Beatles, like Elvis, were unique. There's no way to equal them.

I'm surprised this isn't a Riddler story...little known trivia: Frank Gorshin alias Edward Nigma (E. Nigma) The Riddler was also on The Ed Sullivan Show on The Beatles first appearance!

What a coincidence. I saw this, then a minute later looked at something completely unrelated and found a link to Batman #222, where Batman and Robin investigate the rumor that "Saul Cartwright" of "the Oliver Twists" has died and been replaced with an impostor.

I hope all the Gen X know-nothings who badmouthed Sir Paul McCartney, on-line, during his acceptance of the Lifetime Achievement Grammy, finally did their background research. Because, I'll guarantee you that whatever modern musical "genius" they idolize grew up listening to(and was, therefore, somehow influenced by) the Beatles.

I like it, but wouldn't Wonder Girl and the other Silver Age Teen Titans be even better for a team-up with the Fab Four?

@Kid Charlemagne:

Or even the Filmation Teen Titans (from 1967's "Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure") defending the Rankin/Bass Beatles from Mad Mod?

First off, it wasn't Gen-X'ers (all of whom are now in their forties, BTW and als also aquainted with the Beatles) that insulted Paul, it was millennials (many of them black and Latino) that did. And they have a right to feel that way, too (http://watercoolerconvos.com/2014/07/25/stop-shaming-black-people-for-not-listening-to-the-beatles-and-other-white-people-music/)-you don't get to tell them what they should like as young people.

As to the picture, I love it, and wouldn't mind seeing a special one-shot issues from DC with this story in print and digital.
