Welcome back to another Couch Club Easter egg hunt! If this is your first time (hi, new people!), this is our monthly look at some the comic book references hidden away in some of your favorite DCTV shows.
I love watching all the DCTV shows, but my friends won’t let me watch with them anymore. They complain that I interrupt the shows too many times to point out things like, “Hey, that’s a story element from this or that Silver Age comic.”
I’ve written so much about The Flash since DC launched the Couch Club, and I’ve often made the assertion that the show excels when it’s dealing with the theme of family. I think this extends to the villains as well.
On a show where people can travel through time, race across the earth in a matter of minutes and open up portals to different worlds, you’d think a guy like Ralph Dibny would have a hard time finding his place.
