Spear of Destiny in DCU?
- For the collective brain:
Does the Spear of Destiny in the DCU seem to anyone else to be more a
relic of the Crucifixion than a Grail hallow? I'm not finding any
references to the Grail legend (Dolorous Blow and the Fisher King,
etc.) with relation to DC's use of the Spear except for the fact that
Hitler had both during WWII to repel the US's heroes from entering
Axis territory. In fact, the Spear in Hitler's hands, at least, seems
connected to Nordic myth (perhaps there is a link through Wagner's
Parsifal?), while most recently it was used as a weapon against the
Spectre. Any thoughts?
