- With print publications about to go out and information online, reporter Cluck Trent is out of work. But at least he has his heroic Stupor Duck identity to fall back on. Or does he do it? ” Up there in the sky ! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Uh … what is it? We do not care?”
Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time Daffy Duck has assumed the identity of a DC superhero. In Dodgers duck Season 1, Episode 9, “The Green Loontern”, Daffy, as Duck Dodgers, finds himself in possession of a Green Lantern costume and a ring of power. “The Green Loontern” originally aired on Cartoon Network on October 18, 2003.
On top of that, the character of Duck Dodgers is arguably a superhero in his own right. This interstellar alter ego of Daffy first appeared in the 1953 animated short The Duck Dodgers in the 24½th century, a parody of Buck Rogers in the 25th century. The character of Duck Dodgers has since appeared in a number of others Looney Tunes productions, including the aforementioned 2003 Dodgers duck series on Cartoon Network and the 2003 live-action feature film Looney Tunes: back in action.
Written by Derek Fridolfs and illustrated by Walter Carzon with inks by Horacio Ottolini, colors by Silvana Brys and letters by Wes Abbott, Looney Tunes Issue 262 goes on sale September 21 from DC Comics.
