Fw: Old matter--Mark Merlin found (sort of)
- ----- Original Message -----From: Michael TorregrossaSent: Saturday, March 04, 2000 9:03 PMSubject: Mark Merlin found (sort of)Hi. Just an update on the status of Mark Merlin, who I had inquired about several months ago. As, I think Alan explained, Mark Merlin appeared in DC's 'House of Secrets' until No. 73, when he became Prince Ra-Man. As Merlin, Mark possessed limited supernatural abilities but apparently no connection to the Arthurian Merlin. Mark later traveled to another world, and could only return to Earth by reincarnating into the body of Prince Ra-Man. Ra-man later died in the Crisis.I was initially confusing Mark Merlin with the Golden Age Merlin (Quality), who appeared (briefly) in last years All-Star reunion.MichaelMichael A. Torregrossa, M. A.

preceded the launch of the new JSA series. The story was set in the latter
days of WWII and was told in a series of one-shots. Merlin the Magician
appeared as cannon-fodder, basically -- he and several other Golden Age
sorceror-heroes were wiped out in the first few pages of the first of the one-
shots, "All-Star Comics".
Hope this helps,
