Doctor Strange and Adam Strange in: "Liberation From Limbo!"



I've been wanting to see a live action Adam Strange for a long time, and now it seems that I will get a chance with the upcoming Krypton series on SYFY.  How close will he be to the comic book version though?  The show will take place during the youth of Superman's grandfather, so Adam is not in the proper time or on either Earth or Rann - plus the one image released of him just has him wearing normal civilian clothes... so the verdict is definitely still out. 

Adam and Stephen Strange were first revealed to be brothers in STF #370...

Does anyone but me remember "Strange Report," a 1969 British TV series starring Anthony Quayle as a criminologist named Adam Strange?

Here's hoping that, some day, we get to see the Strange brothers together with the Danvers Twins! (Not as awesome as WW/Cap plus the Power Couple, but it's up there.)

Either way, I think these two are a great match-up, both here and in the previous meeting, and can continue to be so, with the same last name representing both magic and science.

Hmmmmmmmmmm! Let's see: Stegron, to the far left. Left/center; a pair of Jackal clones. Center/right: Princess Python's eponymous pet.* And, far right? What appears to be the love child of Rampage and Blue Devil!


*Sorry, Ross. Couldn't resist. ;-D

I remember the Steve Englehart/Marshll Rogers late 1970s Detective Comics run. There was a doctor who looked a lot like Stephen Strange, who later pulled off his disguise to show that he was really Hugo Strange. Therefore, the doctor who looked like Dr. Strange actually had been "Doctor Strange." Rogers later got to draw the "real" Dr. Strange for a few issues in the 1980s.
