Batman #127

Batman #127, October 1959

No, it’s okay, you haven’t missed a Marvel/DC crossover — this Thor appeared right here long before Stan and Jack’s more familiar Thunder God took to the air. Interestingly enough, the plot features a mild-mannered museum curator who becomes the Thunder God when he touches a viking hammer! Sound familiar? Conspiracy theories start here. Let’s start a campaign to get the value of this comic raised to stratospheric levels by getting it listed in Overstreet as a ‘proto’ appearance.
