Repeat After Me — 3X2(9YZ)4A

DC’s semi-notorious editor Mort Weisinger had a tendency toward creating fairly obvious knock-offs of other characters — Green Arrow for Batman, Aquaman for Submariner and the strobe-effect superhero Johnny Quick for the Flash.
That said, I always liked Johnny Quick, in part because he could eventually fly, which seemed to make sense for a speedy character. Odd to realize that, as a backup feature, Johnny outlasted his more famous inspiration the Flash by several years into the 1950s.
