Just curious, I saw The Question in the Top 25 slot.  However, I'd like to give a go with Denny Colt, The Spirit.  As of 2007, he's been essentially in the DC universe.  I know he doesn't quite fit in continuity, but he's had a crossover with Batman, and is now published by DC (an ongoing monthly in addition to the reprints through DC Archives.)  What are the community's thoughts on bringing The Spirit into play?

Hi! I'm Kat and I'm one of the mods here. We haven't chatted about this at all as a group but here are my thoughts: I don't have anything against having The Spirit in Watchtower. It would be interesting to see him try to fit in with things as they currently stand. I don't think getting a Denny Colt would negate the desire for a Vic Sage since Vic has been in and around the Watchtower universe.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

I'm J.R., one of the other mods here, and.. pretty much what Kat said. We've brought folks in from the DC Animated Universe before..

Hi, I'm Sean, yet another mod.

And wow, you beat me to it! Go for it man. The Spirit is awesome and I'd love seeing one around here. DC has a long tradition of taking forever to properly integrate properties its picked up into the main setting-look how long it took for Milestone or the Charleston characters.

Still Mortician, just figured I'd go with a more Spirit-centric account.

That would be one of the things we'd have to figure out. Right now he doesn't have a place. And I'd imagine it would be a different city than The Flash's Central.

I like Hourman's idea, actually. Denny phased into our Central City around the same time Central City escaped the temporal rift it was locked in. Central City isn't nearly as developed as Keystone City, so there's plenty of room for the Spirit's unique feel and flavor.

It's not like the Spirit/Batman crossover's hard to integrate into DC continuity, either. He showed up in the early days, Central City vanished, and now it's back. There's room for more than one hero in all of the major cities-I mean, look at Gotham's vigilante population, or the times that Steel and Black Lightning have been based out of Metropolis.

Not...necessarily. Do remember that Central City was the time-lost one. If that's still in continuity. Keystone was active and growing for a while, but Central still may have parts of it that are yet unexplored.

I like the idea of the Spirit, personally. Maybe he's a "forgotten" mystery man of the era. With our JSA having recently been more active, he might have been known better by them.

I think that's backwards. Keystone was out of phase for a while.

Anyway we can explain this whole time-lost thing? Denny would be coming into this continuity from what, the 40s?

I mean, I remember something about Central City and Keystone getting swapped or something during Crisis. I've not been keen on Flash continuity at all.

Well, he wouldn't be the first person displaced from the past to the modern day - the Shining Knight, Lady Blackhawk.

He could've disappeared from Central City in the 40's.

Yay punching computers!


Along with a few rogues, of course. P'Gell would totally have plans for Bruce. Oh oh oh! And a near-death Ebony White in a hospice or something.

There are lots of ways to live a long time. Wouldn't want to over-do it, it might stretch plausibility, but a few of his rogues might've come along or weathered the years.

To be honest, as far as unnatural life extension, I'd say just Dr. Cobra and the Octopus really make sense. What I was thinking was P'Gell stuck in the same version of Central City as Denny. But, yeah, wouldn't want to over do it.

Just need to pound out a sample post and I'll be ready to drop an application.

Well, just to clarify, Central City didn't vanish. That was Keystone. But there's nothing to say a small part of Central City didn't skip a few years...

(I know nothing about the Spirit, sadly. I am a bad comic book fan.)

Honestly, dude, you might just want to say, 'Spirit is here from the 40s for the same reason Batman is.' at that point.

Depends on how one wants to approach the character.

First off, applied, posted, et cetera. Secondly, would it work out to have the Spirit simply a modern day hero in Central City? Maybe more low-key and localized than the Flash until recently.
