Quote from: "JulianPerez"


But changing the fact that Oliver Queen once helped Superboy before his costumed career began by dressing up as Robin Hood to a costume party, and using GA's first "trick arrows..." If that never happened, I think Ollie as a character won't be that different.


Well, it's important enough that the next episode of Smallville is based on that classic silver age story.

While the verb form of boot in romance languages seems to mean "to kick", it seems that bootstrap and boot has more to do with "begin again" or just "begin"...

The reason I'm interested is that the term co-incides with computer usage but also a time when comics casting around for new approaches was happening...I suppose its mere coincidence, but comics are pretty unique in telling new stories about the same characters for decades.
