Showcase 4 The Flash - Super-Team Family (1975) #15

Showcase 4 The Flash is a column featuring the adventures of Barry Allen.

"Gulliver Effect!"
Cover Date: March / April 1978 / Cover Price: $0.60 / Cover Artist: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez / Writer: Gerry Conway / Penciller: Arvell M. Jones / Inker: Romeo Tanghal / Colorist: Carl Gafford / Letterers: Milt Snappin & Shelly Leferman / Editor: Paul Levitz


Super-Team Family was an anthology series that DC published from 1975 to 1978 sometimes comprised of reprints, sometimes original stories before it was cancelled and replaced with DC Comics Presents. In the last issue of Super-Team Family, the Barry Allen Flash meets Jack Kirby’s New Gods for the first time.
 
However, when the issue begins, it seems like he already knows at least a few of them. The Flash and Lightray are in outer space rushing toward the body of Orion who has gone up a few shoe sizes and is getting even bigger. Metron, he of the Mobius Chair, explains to Flash that Orion’s Mother Box is keeping him alive and that this living technology is also the reason that Barry can breath in space.

Metron surmises that maybe the Mother Box might explain why Orion has gone all Gulliver, so Flash finds the rhythm the device is putting out and dives in somewhere near the New God’s shoulder. (It seems the Mother Box has grown along with its owner). Even though the Mother Box
has none of the usual components of Earth electronics - wires, circuitry -- Flash hopes to follow its processes in the same way that he has, apparently, done with terrestrial devices.
