The re-tooling of the Flash in Showcase #4 that kicked off the Silver Age of Comics, and the introduction of DC’s Martian Manhunter, Adam Strange and the new Green Lantern! Plus the return of the Timely heroes Captain America, the Human Torch and Sub-Mariner, and the birth of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s Fighting American and The Fly!
