Ten random things: August 9

Ten comic book characters whose first and last names begin with the same letter:

  1. Lori Lemaris (Superman's mermaid girlfriend)
  2. Duo Damsal (member of the Legion of Super-Heroes)
  3. Paste-Pot Pete (enemy of the Fantastic Four)
  4. Reed Richards (a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four)
  5. Robby Reed (can't possibly be sumarized in a few words; see below)
  6. J'onn J'onzz (a.k.a. the Martian Manhunter of the Justice League)
  7. Rainbow Raider (enemy of the Flash II)
  8. Sam Scudder (a.k.a. Mirror Master I, enemy of the Flash II)
  9. Matt Murdock (a.k.a. Daredevil)
  10. Lyla Lerrol (Kryptonian actress)

Robby Reed was exploring a cave near his home of Littleton, Colorado, when he discovered a mysterious device of alien origin. By pressing the letters H-E-R-O on the device, he would become a super-hero for one hour until he dialed O-R-E-H; each time he activated the device, he became a new hero with new powers. He later retired from crime-fighting and started Dial B For Blog, the self-proclaimed World's Greatest Comics Blogazine.
