Since Fawcett has both Otto Binder and Edmond Hamilton and the Legion of Superheroes, could we see more Space Opera style Stories in the Legion book instead of just Superheroes in Space that DC did?

that's not a bad idea actually. I can see a ton of stories influenced by Star Trek, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and even Alien as the years go by.
 
In 66 Human Torch creator Carl Burgos came up with a new character named Mannequin and pitched it to Myron Fass under his new Publication M.F Enterprises it was clear to Carl however that Fass was mainly interested in editing Golden age heroes and copyrighting their names so he decided to take his creation elsewhere

Actually, I'm pretty sure he's still Brainiac-5. That being said, I'd be great if @THeaven decided to keep Mon-El in DC. Maybe make him the new superboy and stick him on the Teen Titans?
All of Jim Shooter's Legion of superheroes creations will be members of the Teen Titans but I can see Mon-El being placed on the team as well considering DC won't have a Wonder Girl until the late 70s
 
TV shows
Because of the popularity of the old Batman serials being shown at the Playboy mansion and at college theaters 20th century fox hired Lorenzo Semple jr. & William Dosier to bring the then falling comic to the small screen

the series stared as regulars
  • Adam West as Batman/Bruce Wayne
  • Burt Ward as Robin/Dick Grayson

  • Lee Meriwether as Aunt Harriet Kane(1st and 2nd season)
  • Neil Hamilton as Commissioner Gordon
  • Stafford Reff as Chief O'Hara
  • Yvonne Craig as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon (3rd season)
(Lee Meriwether had been cast with Batwoman in mind but ABC was hesitant about a Heroine on the show so the plan was decided to place her as Dick Grayson's Grayson's Aunt from the circus and Bruce Waynes love intrest who would slowly uncover the secret identities of her Nephew and Boyfriend. But Lee Meriwether left after season 2 and Batgirl was created in her place)
Recurring Villains Guest stars included
  • Riddler played by Frank Gorshan (John Aston in one episode)

Maybe it's just me but, seeing as Atlas is currently short a few icons, maybe Mannequin could go there?

does that mean we'll see Micro Lad as Doll Lad and Ray Palmer's Kid Sidekick?

With the new found popularity of Batman Atlas and Fawcett found themselves getting itself into the Television market with less than stellar results. Atlas started out with a Atlas Superhero cartoon series for Syndication With
  • Captain America
  • Ironman
  • Incredible Hulk
  • Mighty Thor
  • Submariner
  • And Defenders as the Saturday morning cartoon
It was a bomb

Fawcett Enterprise would try to bring Captain Marvel to the small screen and dispite the pilot having the talent of Robert Culp, Sally field and Butch Patrick every station passed CBS felt it would be to expensive to produce ABC dropped it for Green Hornet, and NBC dropped it for Star Trek
However Irving Allen who had found success on TV with Voyage for the bottom of the sea and Lost in Space wanted to to make a Time Travel series and looked at Minute man to Adapt in 67.

Challaners of the unknown #48 had crossover with Doom Patrol and DC realized that sales for both floundering series were increased in sales. The idea to murge the teams were discussed and approved and the Doom Challengers were formed

It's a neat idea, but will the Challengers get powers of their own? Looking forward to 67 and Steve Ditko's Arrival to the company. One wonders if maybe working alongside Progressives like Jerry and Joe will alter him in any way. Maybe when they see Mr. A for the first time.

  1. No it's a Humans and Freaks working side by side kida deal (though one of them could become TTLs Mento)
  2. No Joe & Jerry will most likely refer to Steve as that punk kid for aw6
I would have called them Challengers of the Doom.
I thought about that but I thought it sounded to close to Legion of Doom
 
TV shows
Of the the networks that turned down the Captain Marvel pilot NBC was the closest to giving it the green light unfortunately Lucille Ball had Supported Gene Roddenberrys Star Trek and the network decided to go with the DesiLu project.

The show lasted only three of the five year planned series but it gathered a strong cult following with six movies with the original cast and numerous spin offs that all the original cast would guess star as either their TOS characters or new characters in the case of Majel Barret(Lwaxanna Troi TNG, DS9) and Walter Koning (MAKO General Rodnovich ENT)
  • William Shantner as Captain James T. Kirk (guest started in ENT episode Nexus Encounter part 1 & 2)
  • Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock (Guest started in TNG episode Unification part 1 & 2)
  • Deforest Kelly as Dr. Leonard McCoy (guest started in TNG episode Encounter at far point part 2)
  • James Dohan as Montgomery Scott (guest started in TNG episode Relics, & DS9 episode Miracle Workers)
  • George Takei as Lt Sulu ( guest started as Captain Sulu in VOY episode Flashback)
  • Nichelle Nichols as Lt. Uhura (guest started as hologram in DS9 episode Morale show)
  • Grace Lee Whitney as Yeoman Janice Rand (guest started as 1st officer Janice Rand in VOY episode Flashback)

Nice to see Star Trek is on the air!

Hopefully the Comics, and other merch will persuade Lucy Ball not to sell to Paramount and keep Desilu going.

Once the rerun numbers start coming in in 68 perhaps Trek will return to the airwaves sooner.

Which means we're not far off from that big team book. Looking forward to Mr A.

Which would mean that Star Trek: Phase Two would probably happen.
