The DC Bloodlines Podcast: You May Call Me Doctor Mist!

Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.

The ancient immortal African mystic Doctor Mist was introduced in a cameo on the last page of 1978's The Super Friends #12 before continuing into appearances in The Super Friends #13 & 45-46 before officially forming the Global Guardians in DC Comics Presents #46. We cover these comics to varying degrees, but our primary focus is the supposed true story of "Nommo," appended to tales starring Zatara and Zatanna. Is Dr. Mist one of the most powerful and important figures in the history of the DC Universe, or a sad and lonely fraud? You decide, and you can follow along with our reading of 1988's Secret Origins #27 at The Secret Origins Podcast.

God bless you for trying to make sense of that Secret Origins issue. I still don't know if everything Mist said in the first 2/3 of the book is true? Or just the ravings of a madman? At one point he says he has gone insane and is powerless?

I do think Mist is one of the people the Spectre brings to the beginning of time in Crisis ... so maybe he has power?

I wouldn't mind him gaining some prominence in the DCU but where would that be these days?
