Streaky also appeared in Superman: The Animated Series and the Justice League episode "Comfort and Joy". However, she had no powers in either one.

A robot version briefly appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode, "Deep Freeze".

Shouldn't Streaky's breed be Kryptonian shorthair? Or is there much more to Streaky's origin than I ever thought.

Siskoid said...

Streaky isn't Kryptonian like Krypto is. He's an Earth cat exposed to modified Green K.

Dan said...

And if you think that's silly, then you really, really don't want to know the origin of Comet the Super-horse.

Jon K said...

Hey, Siskoid! My dog Krypto wants to know when you'll get around to doing "Dog of the Geek" -- or have you done that already and I didn't read far enough back into the archives?

Siskoid said...

I have no such plans!

According to my original thesis (accompanying Cat of the Geek #1), the cat is the Geek's best pet.

Not to say dogs aren't cool too. Takes all kinds ;)

You're more than welcome to start your own DotG on one of your many blogs. Make sure to let me know!

Streaky is more freaky (sorry) than I ever imagined.

And Great Big Nerd, as long as Comet's origin doesn't involve internet videos, it can't be that crazy.

Siskoid said...

Straight from wiki:
As he described to her telepathically, he was originally a centaur in ancient Greece named Biron. The witch Circe gave him a potion to turn him fully human, but by mistake made him fully horse instead. Unable to reverse the spell, she instead gave him superpowers, including immortality. Later, after meeting Supergirl, he went on a mission with her to another planet, where a magic spell was cast that turned him into a human, but only while a comet passes through the solar system he is in. As a human, he adopted the identity of "Bronco" Bill Starr, a rodeo trick-rider.

Lois Lane had a romance with Comet once (in its human form).

ShadowWing Tronix said...

Wait, with Lois? I thought he was all hot for Kara, which I'm not sure if I should be grossed out about or not.

Siskoid said...

Both, my friend. BOTH.

Jon K said...

Well, Siskoid, maybe I will do a "dog of the geek" feature sometime in the future... let's see, there's Krypto, Rex the Wonder Dog, Ace the Bat-Hound, Robotman's robot dog, Golden Age Manhunter's dog Thor, the dog from Hercules Unbound (forget his name)... that's just from the top of my head, and just from comics! Oh, wait, wasn't there a dog in the Doll Man strip, plus Streak the Wonder Dog from MLJ, as well as a dog that kind of took over the Golden Age Green Lantern's book?

Siskoid said...

The Scoobie Doo family. Lassie, Benjie and Rintintin. Blue Falcon's robot dog. Hong Kong Fooey. And don't forget to include some evil dogs like Cujo and Hitler's dog.
