This file includes characters originally published by DC's predecessor companies between 1936 and 1955, which includes the Golden Age (1938-47 and most of the Atomic Age (1948-57). As can be expected, with stories this old, the accuracy of the data presented becomes more suspect. The funny animal data should be taken with a particularly large grain of salt. I have tried to include images from the characters' first appearances. If that was not possible I tried to get the original artists.  If not, the artist is indicated on the image.  Click on the JSA members' pictures for links to full page artwork.
