Title character of the intensely awful 1969 DC comic
, which ran all of two issues. "HERE is the REAL-LIFE SCENE of the DANGERS in HIPPIE-LAND!" the cover proclaimed in lurid red letters. The story by Golden Age
great Joe Simon
(which I am relating second-hand - if anyone's actually read this dog, please feel free to correct any errors or omissions on my part) follows a floppy thrift store dummy
come to life, who finds shelter in a swingin' hippie commune
known as the Brotherly Love Sect. They dub him "Brother Power". When he is kidnapped by an evil circus
, they dress as superhero
es and stage a far-out happening
to rescue him.
Neil Gaiman has brought Brother Power back for a couple of guest appearances in his comics, and he can also be seen in the deep background in the bar scene of Kingdom Come, getting his finger broken by Rorschach.
