100 Days Of The King - Day 69


Mister Miracle might well be the most durable of the myriad heroes and heroines created by Jack Kirby for the DC "Fourth World". As seen above the original concepts were a wee bit different than final product, especially the notion that Mister Miracle might rely on a gun.


Here we see the ultimate design as worn by Thaddeus Brown, the original Mister Miracle.


Scott Free steps in to save the day and in doing so shows that he has the bravery and spunk to be more than a bystander.


Later he shows that he as skills, talents, and equipment which make him a most remarkable replacement for the original. He takes the role when Brown is killed and makes it his own.


Scott himself, is on Earth hiding from Darksied's terrifying Granny Goodness who took charge of him when he, Highfather's son, was traded for Orion to make a peace many years before. When Scott escapes Apokolips he gives Darkseid an excuse to reignite the conflict, which this time brings the New Gods to Earth.

  1. What a great image of Mister Miracle! That first one is Fine Art Kirby with watercolor brush in hand. This is what I'm reading these days (savoring it by reading only two issues a day).

    1. I know the feeling to make the wonderful meal last as long as possible. The great thing with Kirby's Fourth World is that it will stand up beautifully to multiple encounters.
