Elastic Lad - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Elastic Lad © DC Comics

Depending on how much you know about the Legion of Super-Heroes and Jimmy Olsen, this post will either be nostalgic or a surprise. In case you don't know, Jimmy Olsen is an Honorary Legionnaire. When Jimmy uses a serum invented by Professor Potter, he becomes the stretchable Elastic Lad. In the 1960s Jimmy had a number of adventures with the Legion in his book. All were comical in someway, like the time all the female Legionnaires fell in love with him. Elastic Lad is just one of the many weird alter egos that Jimmy had back in the day, but it's the only one that got him noticed by the Legion. Thanks to Michael for this commission!
