    Since I made over 1,000 ToonZone posts to date by now, is anyone familiar with DC Comics The 1000 superhero team?

    1. Isn't The 1000 a criminal organization and not a superhero team?

    2. Were you really trying to spark any discussion involving this obscure criminal organization from comic lore or were you just trying to announce your post count publically?

    Post count threads aren't allowed on the boards, but I'll let this stay open to see if a discussion on DC's the 100 and the 1000 develops. If the thread continues to go off-topic, it will be closed.

    For anyone who isn't familiar:

    Somehow the ) didn't get into your hyperlink. :sweat:

    But yeah, looking at that page I vaguely remember the 1000 from when they were the 100 in the original Booster Gold. Vary vaguely.

    From what I can tell the Council appeared in better stories (the Manhunter and Nemesis stories). The 100/1000 gave us Tobias Whale (okay, those Black Lightnings aren't bad) and killed Rose and Thorn's dad.

    But essentially, with the rise of Intergang in Metropolis the 100/1000 as a Metropolis based organization is redundant and obsolete.

    Organizations that are cooler, in DC, include the Hive, the League of Assasins and the Kobra Cult. Lamer includes the Wildebeest Society.
