The Wasp and The Atom in "Cruelty of the Cannoneer!"



I enjoyed the season premiere of Legends of Tomorrow, but still wish that the characters were a little closer to their comic counterparts.  The Atom and Firestorm still come off more like low budget versions of Iron Man and the Human Torch, and I was hoping Dinah Lance would take on the Black Canary identity again, now that her sister is gone.  I love that they are introducing the Justice Society, but at first glance they seem quite a bit altered as well, next week will show how faithful they are to their comic roots.  That's just the purist in me though, the series is still a fun watch.

This is the third meeting between these diminutive heroes.  they first mat in STF #216, and then once again in STF #768...

I remember reading the original B&B back issue! And, to this day, I still wish that shrunken French acrobat had won the cat-fight with Atom.*

*She was so cute!

Only two comments, including mine? I guess you don't have that many microphiles among your readership, Ross.
