when you google image “original seven” you get pictures of the mercury astronauts mixed with pictures of the original justice league….that just feels right
Well, we all know Scott Carpenter was Aquaman and Alan Shepard was Batman. I just now decided that Gordo was The Flash.
BUT WHO IS WONDER WOMAN?
This is my kind of question!
I can see Glenn as Superman, but I think the one who’d be hardest to place is Green Lantern.
(Because the Green Lantern who first joined the Justice League is Hal Jordan who, in his non-superhero life, is a test pilot, which makes him really cool and unique among superheroes… but makes him like EVERY SINGLE ONE of the Mercury 7.)
I was actually thinking along the same lines. ‘The entire group of Mercury astronauts were secretly Green Lanterns’ is my new Head Canon.
