The Shape Of Things That Came!



The Shape by Roy Thomas and the late Richard "Grass" Green in Charlton Premiere #1 is one of the strangest features ever. Created in the tradition of successful stretchy and shape-shifting heroes like


Plastic Man,



Mister Fantastic,



and Elongated Man,


the Shape was something different still.

Charlton Premiere is The Shape's sole appearance, but it's not too much to say that his wacky nature and shape-shifting ways might indeed have inspired a certain Energy Man who appeared in the Charlton line-up a few years later.


They have much in common, especially a truly wacky sense of humor.

Here from 1967 is "It's The Shape!" by Thomas and Green. Enjoy!








Now that was different.

Rip Off
