Brave and the Bold No. 76
February-March 1968
Cover: Batman vs. Molder as Plastic Man melts over building //Neal Adams
Story: “Doom, What Is Thy Shape?”  (24 pages)
Editor: George Kashdan
Writer: Bob Haney
Penciller: Mike Sekowsky
Inker: Joe Giella?
Feature Characters: Batman (last appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #371; next appears in BATMAN #199), Plastic Man (last chronological appearance in flashback in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #144; next appears in issue #95; see Comment below)
Supporting Character: Commissioner Gordon (last appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #371; next appears in BATMAN #199)
Comment: Plastic Man’s appearances in the DC Universe are difficult to track.  The Plastic Man who appears in the original Quality Comics run from 1941-56 exists on Earth-Quality, with an Earth-Two Plastic Man first appearing in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #107 and later going to Earth-X (see ALL-STAR SQUADRON #50).  The Plastic Man who appears in DC’s PLASTIC MAN #1-10 is revealed in issue #7 to be the son of Eel O’Brian, the original, now aged, Plastic Man.  Since later Plastic Man versions are identified with the original Eel O’Brian, it is our belief that the Plastic Man of PLASTIC MAN #1-10 (DC series) exists on the Inferior Five’s Earth, since he appears in INFERIOR FIVE #2.  The Plastic Man in this story is probably the Earth-One Plastic Man, who appears in later issues of BRAVE AND THE BOLD (though some controversy exists as to whether or not these should be Earth-B stories), in PLASTIC MAN #11-20, and in ADVENTURE COMICS #467-478, as well as in flashback in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #144.
Villains: The Molder (first and only appearance), the Plastoids (first appearance; destroyed in this story)
Synopsis: Batman teams up with Plastic Man to stop the Molder and his Plasmoid androids from looting Gotham City.

 Comments
This story continues in part from Strange Adventures #216.
Deadman's continuity, in both the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths world of Earth-One, and the post-Crisis New Earth, is quite confused from this point on.  In the pre-Crisis world, Deadman's next appearance is his adventure with Aquaman in Aquaman #50-52.  But in the post-Crisis world, his adventure in this issue continues directly into Deadman #1-4, which resolves many of the issues dealt with in this story.  Couple this with the fact that many succeeding stories cannot be reconciled with either storyline--for instance, the "revelation" in Forever People #10 that Deadman wasn't "really" murdered by the Hook who died in Strange Adventures #215, or Deadman's inhabiting the body of Batman's "brother" Thomas Wayne in World's Finest Comics #223 and 227 in a storyline not considered canonical by this indexer or many others--and the job of tracing Deadman's career after this issue becomes problematic indeed.  We will attempt to indicate whether or not a Deadman appearance is "canonical", and the grounds for its exclusion if it is not.
 In this story, it is revealed that Vashnu knows of Boston Brand's ghostly identity as Deadman, and, of course, Cleveland Brand learns of it as well.
 Synopsis
 After Batman and Robin take out a small gang of extortionists, Robin grabs one of the gang's guns and attempts to shoot Batman.  Batman disarms his partner and finds Robin cannot remember what he has just done.  When Commissioner Gordon attempts a similar act, Batman takes to his heels, deducing that Deadman, his former ally, is somehow trying to kill him.  Several other bystanders on the street are inhabited by Deadman and attempt to do Batman harm, which he evades.  Finally, Batman confronts Deadman (who inhabits a pigeon keeper's body) and confronts him with the truth:  none of the people he has taken over really have a chance of harming Batman, and, if he wants to kill his old friend, he can easily jump into Batman's body and make him jump off a high building.  Confused, torn by conflicting impulses, Deadman screams in agony and exits the man's body.
 Batman goes to Hills Brothers Circus in search of an explanation, and is introduced to Cleveland Brand, who is once again impersonating Deadman and attempting a trapeze act.  Deadman inhabits his brother's body and tries to really put on a show, but misses a catch bar and is only saved by Batman.  Deadman is even more conflicted, admitting he cannot kill his brother's savior.  Vashnu suddenly appears and tells Batman and Deadman (in Cleve's body) that Rama Kushna orders Deadman back to Nanda Parbat.  Since Deadman is still under a compulsion to kill Batman, Batman agrees to go with him (and Cleve) to Nanda Parbat.
 Meanwhile, Willie Smith and Lotus report to the Sensei.  Smith tells the Sensei that he shot Deadman with a poison dart as the ghost was half-dematerialized.  The dart's poison made Deadman suggestible, and Smith was able to get him to reverse his sentiments about his friend Batman and his enemy the Sensei.  The Sensei reaffirms his desire to obliterate Nanda Parbat, thus removing the "refuge from evil" and increasing the chaos that will benefit the Society of Assassins.  He, Smith, and an armed contingent of the Society begin their journey to Nanda Parbat.
 Batman, Deadman, and Cleveland Brand enter Nanda Parbat.  Deadman materializes and collapses, his life endangered by the poison of Willie Smith's dart.  Rama Kushna appears to Batman and Cleve and tells them that one of the men approaching Nanda Parbat (Willie Smith) has the antidote.  The two allies use guerilla tactics to defeat the Society, with Batman knocking out Smith and taking the antidote from him.  The Sensei vows revenge on Batman and Deadman.  Batman administers the antidote to Deadman, who recovers in the presence of Batman and Cleve.  He admits to them that, since he can still be harmed within Nanda Parbat, he intends to return to the outside world and his ghostly existence.

 Feature Characters

Deadman (last seen in Forever People #10; next appearance in Phantom Stranger #33)
 Supporting Characters
Commissioner Gordon (last seen in DETECTIVE COMICS #428)

 Villains
Lilly Lang (first appearance; dies in this story)
Richie Wandrus, Holt Granigan, and other criminals (first and only appearance for all)
Waxey Doyle (first appearance; dies in this story)
 Comments
Lilly Lang is obviously named for Lillie Langtry, famed British stage actress of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
This story is probably canonical.  However, Deadman's willingness to kill, even in a good cause, raises some doubt.
 Synopsis
 In order to get the goods on Lilly Lang and Richie Wandrus's face-and-identity-changing operation for crooks at their Florida spa hideaway, Batman summons Deadman to inhabit Richie's body and reconnoiter.  On the way, Rama Kushna uses Vashnu as a mouthpiece to warn Deadman that "a man, a spirit in love, may only gain his heart's desire by...losing it!  For is not love stronger than death itself?"
 While inhabiting Richie's body, Deadman falls in love with Lilly, and confesses his true identity to her.  She continues to love him, preferring Boston's personality to Richie's.  Batman also learns of Deadman's love affair with Lilly, and, at a climactic point, leaps between them, with both Deadman (in Richie's body) and Lilly holding guns, and Lilly threatening to kill Batman.  Deadman, wishing to save his friend, and interpreting Rama Kushna's remarks to mean that she will join him in phantom form after death, kills Lilly.  But, much to his agony, she fails to expel a ghost he can detect, and he rockets away from Richie's body, in tears.

Achille Lazlo (first appearance; dies in this story)
Marius (first appearance; dies in this story)
Gassman and other members of a crime combine (first and only appearance for all)
 Comment
This story is probably canonical, although it stretches the imagination to think that Deadman could inhabit a painted portrait and make it speak.  Most likely, the ghost of Turk Bannion was around, giving him some added psychic power to pull off the stunt.
 Synopsis
 In 1933, crime-boss Turk Bannion was killed in secret by his top rum-runner, Achille Lazlo, who in the decades intervening has become top man in a crime combine and one of the biggest drug-smugglers around.  Batman, who suspects Lazlo of the crime, intends to frame him for Bannion's murder and have him tried by the crime combine heads.  Deadman is enlisted for the job.  By inhabiting crooks and even a painting of Bannion, Deadman makes it appear that Lazlo is indeed being haunted by Bannion.  The mob bosses conduct a trial aboard a ship outside U.S. coastal limits, but Batman lashes the wheel and brings it within legal range for the police.  Lazlo attempts an escape on a speedboat, but the real ghost of Bannion appears, steers the boat into a reef, and reveals himself to the dying Lazlo.

the Children of Light, a terrorist group, is threatening to use it to destroy Gotham City unless their leader, Kahman Abhood, is released from custody.  Batman investigates STAR Laboratories,
where the satellite was manufactured, and finds an unconscious Supergirl there.  He revives her and learns that, as Linda Danvers, Supergirl helped counsel student prodigy Josh Kimble, a part-time worker at STAR Labs.  When he neared her, her powers faded.  As Supergirl, she discovered him sabotaging the satellite, but was stripped of her powers by his presence and
knocked out by an unseen attacker.  Batman and Supergirl team up and eventually discover that Dr. Light is aiding the Children of Light, and that the satellite is protected by a red-sun radiation
field that strips Supergirl of her powers.  Josh Kimble had absorbed enough of the radiation while working on the satellite to cause power-loss to Supergirl.  Batman and Supergirl invade the Children of Light's headquarters, and, with the red-sun field shut down, Supergirl is barely able to destroy the satellite before Dr. Light can fire a deadly blast at Gotham.  Batman defeats and captures Light and the terrorists.  Later, he praises Supergirl's ability and aid, and she is flattered.
