"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
This is the first of a new feature where I spotlight moments, exchanges, etc. from older comics that take on a brand new light when read in concert with later comic books.
Our first example is from Justice League America #35, where Blue Beetle and Booster Gold are bemoaning the failure of their attempt to make a Justice League-themed casino…
Obviously, roughly fifteen years later Maxwell Lord did, indeed, shoot Beetle in the head.
