Great list.  There is not enough fans here on the Vine that is dropping the knowledge.

Brilliant compilation. I think I learned more in reading this list than browsing through the site.

Woah! Never knew Angel and the Ape were some what influential to the rest of the DC Universe. Especially since those two were created more as joke characters of the DCU than serious ones. Also I never knew Thor played such a big part for DCU. Knew Kirby did set the New Gods up in Marvel though I expected it to be in Fantastic Four or Avengers.

Great list! I'll have to check some of these comics out. Especially Spectre and Angel & The Ape. Those two always interested me.
