Dynomutt & Blue Falcon and The Falcon



I thought it was cool that Redwing was presented as a drone in Captain America: Civil War, and liked how the tech was used.  Still it would have been even cooler if they could have found a way to include the actual avian Redwing.  I love the idea of superhero pets and partners. One reason I want to see a Batman Beyond movie is to have Ace the Bat-Hound on the big screen.

Thank you to comics historian and Patron of this blog Marc Tyler Nobleman for suggesting this team-up!

I'm surprised they didn't show Sam having a pet bird at his apartment named Redwing. Or have him raise carrier pigoens or something.

With the success of Spider-Ham's appearance in the Spider-Verse movie, I think Disney/Marvel would be well served to make an animated Pet Avengers movie.
Also, there can never be enough Hanna-Barbera crossovers for my tastes so this one is quite welcome. :D
In that spirit, I'd love to see Hong Kong Phooey team up with the Ninja Turtles sometime

Were Birdman & Avenger not available too?

How about Krypto the Superdog (Cartoon Network) and Scooby-Doo?

Nice!

A Golden-age hero called the Silver Streak also had a falcon as an ally... and it was one that (due to a blood transfusion, IIRC) shared his super-speed powers.

Falcon and Birdman have already met on the blog.

I say Redwing is under the Puppet Master's spell. Discourtesy of Beastwoman!

Too bad you couldn't have worked Ace into this cover. We haven't seen him since he formed the Dogs of War back in #415, and I'd like to see more of him.

(Speaking of that cover, I mentioned Road Rovers at the time, since you said in that entry that combining dogs and superheroes "really captures [your] interest." It's now available on DVD, and I highly recommend it for you.)

Is Redwing the only animal sidekick on Earth-616? I think it might be interesting to see who Ace could team up with, besides him or Lockjaw. (As far as I know, Chewie is just a regular cat.) Wait... maybe Lockheed?

Say... Krypto and Lockheed would be an interesting pairing. Both are extraterrestrial animals with human-level intelligence (or close enough to it) and considerable power. If nothing else, that's something the Collector might take an interest in.

Bob Greenwade said...

Whoops! Found it -- Lockheed & Krypto met in #605. Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt to see them reunite.

How about Morocco Mole and Minute Mouse? Not much in crime fighting skills.

How about a triple alliance? Batman, Birdman, _and_ the Blue Falcon!

To elaborate on my suggestion of Feb. 11, it was never canonically established just who Birdboy really was, as the dangling plot threads concerning both his missing memory _and_ missing father were never satisfactorily tied up. The only things known for certain were that his own solar powers were catalyzed by Birdman's (a la the Golden Age Human Torch and Toro). And that the robotic wings that aided his flying looked to be scaled-down duplicates of those worn by the briefly brainwashed impostor, Bird Girl!

The other day, someone mentioned Rocket, and it took me a moment to realize that they meant the raccoon and not Icon's female partner. Then I wondered, what would happen if Rocket met Rocket?

So the depiction of an adventure where Batman evidently reveals to Birdman that BF is Birdboy all grown-up would seem perfectly feasible.

Cary Comic said...

@Anonymous: I'd buy a real-world version of such a team-up in the proverbial New York minute!

Bob Greenwade said...

I recently had the reverse experience that Other Bob describes, and I second his suggestion: Rocket and Rocket.

And Rocket J Squirrel?

Or all three Rockets vs. a mind-controlled Capt. Sprocket!

@Anon#5:How about the three Rockets and Team Rocket; also Capt. Sprocket and Mr. Spacely (of Spacely's Sprockets).

I approve of classic Dynomutt and Blue Falcon team-ups.
