    I think the reason why Grodd is so popular among flash villains is because he shows his face in so many different titles. To be honest, Rogues and Reverse Flash are like Flash stalkers, so it’s hard to use them in other titles, and Grodd is like a black Panther. I understand. Personally, I think it would be fun if zatanna fight Abra published a comics.

    By the way, Dr. Nightmare? DC Comics is making a lot of new characters these days. Can’t we use Dr. Destiny since there’s a Sandman drama coming out these days?

      Grodd’s a weird character, and he seems to be quite popular among comics creators because so many of them list him among their Flash villain favourites when they get asked in interviews, so I think that’s a big part of why he appears a lot. But agreed, I’d love to see Kadabra vs Zatanna! And the Top vs Red Tornado, outside of the Batman: Brave and the Bold cartoon 😉 They already did matchups of both fights, so presumably they wanted to see those too.

      Somebody on another site mentioned the Dr Nightmare/Dr Destiny connection and I agree it’s a good one. But I also wonder if DC is mostly keeping John Dee as a Vertigo character (or a mature readers imprint since Vertigo’s gone) now that he’s most strongly associated with Sandman. He is a much darker character in Sandman, after all.

        I think Grodd is a symbol of Silver Age, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong in that context because Flash is a symbol of Silver Age. However, I have a strong feeling that Grodd is arguing alone. Personally, I think it would be nice to have Drew Drowden from John Broom. In Flash 108, Grodd was fun.

          Yeah, I have to admit that I prefer Grodd with a slightly goofy tone to him — he doesn’t have to be ridiculous, but over the past ~20 years he’s gotten darker and darker with the brain eating and heads on pikes, and I don’t like that. I’d rather there’s a slight acknowledgement that the entire concept of Gorilla City is a bit weird, and not taking it too seriously. But I will grant that Grodd’s definitely become a terrifying villain over the years, and some people probably prefer that.
