Disney to Reboot "The Rocketeer" With Black Female Lead
COMIC LEGEND: Mark Waid invented Impulse for another company before then bringing the character to DC Comics.
Bart Allen, Impulse, debuted in Flash #92 by Mark Waid and Mike Weiringo…
Reader Rafael asked (in the comments section on the OLD blog, so I missed it for nine years until coming across it recently):
I heard somewhere that Impulse was a character Waid created for another publisher and the brought him to DC; have you tackled it before or have any info?
I have not, Rafael, but I’ll do it now! I asked Mark Waid about this and he said that nope, he invented Bart Allen specifically for DC. So there ya go!
Thanks for the question, Rafael! And thanks for the info, Mark!
