I recently asked on the newsgroup rec.arts.comics.dc.universe if anyone knew in there was any significance to the odd name of the villain from Miracle Monday, C. W. Saturn.

A poster, kevrob, noticed that it was an anagram for Curt Swan!

Does anyone know the story behind this?

I don't know the story behind this but I'm dumbfounded that I never realized this before. (And I'm the guy who saw that 'Ben De Roy' was an anagram for Marvel's Beyonder.)

Kudos to Kevrob for this!

I suspect it was an in-joke like Lolita Fatjo is on the production staff for Star Trek: The Next Generation so the character 'Fazio' was the villain in "The Most Toys", and another prod. crew member had the last name Danus so the reverse 'Sunad' was a character in another episode.

Or how about how 'Geoff Johns' was the villain in the recent episode "Recruit" of Smallville?  They didn't even change the spelling this time.

This kind of in-joke is pretty common.  The X-Files had a plethora of those every episode for those in the know.

So Maggin thought that Swan was Satan?  You'd think it was the other way around --that the artists would complain about the writers making them draw such outrageous, impossible scenes. Cheesy
