Earth-Two-Kenn

I was born in 1968. Despite this, my first Flash was Jay Garrick and my first Green Lantern was Alan Scott (and my first Human Torch was Jim Hammond). I just may be the youngest person to start out as a fan of DC as a fan of its Golden Age (I sometimes tell people I was born on Earth-Two.)

I also believe anyone who thinks Billy Batson’s alter-ego should be called “Shazam” is an idiot. It would be like calling that masked hero of the Old West “Hi-Yo Silver” or Edgar Rice Burroughs’ lord of the jungle “Ungawah.”
