Iceman and Robin in "Cold Case!"



The first time that I paired Iceman and Robin together, I used Dick Grayson, and more than one person pointed out to me that Tim Drake might have offered more story opportunities because of the shared last name.  What can I say, I have to agree, so here's a cover to remedy the situation!

Interesting concept... and yet another story that I'd like to read.
^_^


And DC themselves have sometimes decided that characters coincidentally given the same surname by their creators are actually relatives (e.g. Jim 'Guardian' Harper & Ray 'Speedy/Arsenal/Red Arrow' Harper), so this would work well in their context too... although I think that despite the first Black Canary having been Dinah DRAKE, and Tim having worked with her daughter from time to time, no kinship has canonically been suggested in THAT case.

@ Simreeve: She's probably more closely related to Mortimer "the Silver Age Cavalier" Drake. :-)

@ Ross: as I've no doubt I was one of the request-makers, I thank you for finally thinking up a brilliant way to grant it. :-)

How about one with Spidey trying to keep War Nurse and Wonder Woman from coming to blows over Capt. America?

War Nurse?

Cary Comic said...

A Golden Age superheroine who's now in the public domain. She was revived by AC, back in the late Eighties/early Nineties, as a recurring guest-star for their Femforce comic. In-universe back story? She and several other Golden Agers volunteered for a cryogenics experiment in the early days of the Cold War. To be thawed out in the event of World War III and help guide/unify any American survivors. Her real name?

Patricia Parker.

This would be a brilliant story.

'Nuff said. :)

Hmm...maybe War Nurse was the sister of a certain wall-crawler's ancestor?

Who knows, KC? She might even be his paternal grandmother (lol)!

So clever! I love it when you surprisingly join last names!!

Fun idea, making Tim Drake and Bobby Drake cousins.
