Onscreen History of Adam Strange

First introduced in 1958 in the pages of Showcase #17, the jet pack toting Adam Strange was a defender of the aliens on the planet Rann ala John Carter of Mars.

Strange made his onscreen debut in the 2008 animated film, Justice League: The New Frontier where he fought off the onslaught of the dinosaur spewing Center.

Although he uttered no lines in his first appearance, the Zeta beam riding Strange would return for a pair of appearances, along with his alien wife Alanna, in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Most recently, a modernized Strange was featured on Young Justice: Invasion where he lead a team into hostile territory on Rann. Its likely Strange will return on Young Justice and perhaps he will pop up elsewhere in the near future, but the bombing of John Carter may have placed rumored plans for an Adam Strange movie on ice, at least temporarily.
