Detective: Comics


I have been the second and the fourth and the second, again.


I have fought side-by-side with and against immortals.


I have been infinity and known the fleeting nature of the moment.


I have been present in the future.


WHO AM I?

@Calvin and Nate

Nope but good guesses.

Graig Kent said...

It's Barry or Wally, I'm just trying to figure out how either fits...

Devon Sanders said...

@ Graig

It's not any of The Flashes.

Graig Kent said...

I'm going to say Barry...

He was the Second Flash after Jay, and then the Fourth Flash when it looked like he'd returned (just before bart did), then, resurrected, he's the second flash again

he's fought with, well, everyone, and against Vandal Savage I'm sure.

He was lost in the time stream/speed force (infinity) and of course he knows how fleeting moments are.

He lived in the future for a while.

enh?

dang

is it Power Girl?

Devon Sanders said...

@ Graig

I'm gonna give you this one because everything you said makes so much damned sense!

It's not who I'm thinking of but man, your logic's hard to deny.

The doors still open for who I was thinking of.

Devon Sanders said...

@Graig

Not Power Girl.

Graig Kent said...

...Swamp Thing...

Ken Cox said...

Is it Rick Tyler?

He was the 2nd Hourman, the 4th Dr. Fate, and then the 2nd Hourman again.

He has fought against Vandal Savage and with the Golden Age Hawkman and Hawkgirl (whose reincarnations make them immortals of a sort).

He was a member of Infinity, Inc. and his Hourman powers are fleeting due to the 60-minute effects of Miraclo.

He's travelled in time and was trapped in the timepoint while ill.

@ Ken Cox... you are a genius... that sounds so very right to me

Devon Sanders said...

@ Ken

You got it!

Although, he was the second person to carry the Hourman mantle and after the android Hourman cured him, he became Hourman, again.

And the finally clue was more a comment on his newfound abilities to see an hour ahead into the future.

Great detective work!

Excellent! (Even though I just realized that, in my haste, I apparently conflated Rick Tyler's backstory with Hector Hall's. Ah, well.)
