I'm going through a stack of Silver Age Marvel comics and suddenly I am struck with a bolt from the blue. In the 1960's Nick Fury was the featured character in 2 separate titles. Not too surprising, after all some characters star (or have starred) in 3, 4, 5 or even more monthly titles. -cough- Wolverine, -cough- Spider-Man, -cough- Superman, -cough- Batman, shall I go on...?

The difference here is the time frame.

First you have Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos which is firmly rooted in WWII and focuses on a younger, two-eyed Sergeant and is a gritty war saga.

Then there is Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. where Nick is now a cyclopean secret agent fighting a slick, futuristic enemy.

Now I ask you, is there any other example of a single character, from any company, who was the lead character in two regular titles- in two such different time periods?

I can't think of any right off hand. Either way it is a mighty Marvel accomplishment.

Fantastic News! Hall of Heroes has now surpassed 600 Hero Ratings! I couldn't have done it without all of you and I will strive to maintain and improve my high standards. Which brings me to my next announcement - starting now, all shipments will come with tracking at no extra charge to you! I'm a little late to the party but as they say - better late than never. You spoke and I heard you loud and clear. Excelsior!

Captain America
After Stan Lee masterminded Cap's Silver Age revival in Avengers #4. Whilst he was making modern day appearances with the group, Tales of Suspense were publishing concurrently new stories set in WWII with Bucky still alive as Cap's sidekick.

EDIT: I also remember during the mid-70's, DC were publishing solo Wonder Woman issues set in WWII when all her JLA appearances were modern day. That was of course by dint of the WWII stories being Earth-2 and JLA being Earth-1. Or do you just mean both titles being solo series?

I was talking about solo titular titles. I had forgotten about the TOS/Avengers era overlap and now that you mention it I recall that The Invaders was published in the 1970's and featured Cap, Sub-Mariner and a bunch of other WWII era heroes and villains who had appearances in Modern Age stories.

I'm not too familiar with early DC but didn't they ret-con the Earth-2 Wonder Woman into her mother, Hippolyta? Either way, that is another example.

Great! Keep it coming, anybody else?
