‘Mister Terrific’: A first look at the second issue

Oct. 10, 2011 | 5:38 p.m.

Next year marks the 70th anniversary of Mister Terrific, the comic book character with a truly awful fashion sense, even by mystery-men standards of the Roosevelt years (Mr. T rocked a Christmas color scheme and the words “Fair Play” emblazoned across his abdomen). Maybe it’s no coincidence he had no real traction in the public imagination. In 1997 the name was adopted by a very different character in the DC Universe and now, with The New 52 initiative, there’s another rebirth of a sort with cosmic overtones. We have an exclusive preview of issue No. 2, which hits stands in upcoming weeks and features the first appearance of a new villain, Brainstorm, who has nasty ideas about our beloved Los Angeles.  Click through the gallery above, or use the links below to see larger versions.

    I wouldn't be mocking Terry's fashion sense while showing pictures of a guy in a sleeveless unitard with gloves. If they bring back the jacket soon, I might give the new series a look.

    He was an interesting character in JSA but yeah, he needs the jacket.
