3:32PM - "Even the moon is frightened of me. Frightened to death."

Captain Strong is making a comeback in the Harley Quinn comic book. I can't remember seeing him in any comics after Crisis in Infinite Earths, maybe even as far back as comic books from the 1970's. He was in some old used Swedish Superman comics I used to buy at yard sales and used book shops.
