Talk:Tolkien's works in popular media

Should we include comic book appearances of Tolkien and concepts from Middle-earth in this list? Question derived from this. Or create a separate comic book article? --Morgan 23:13, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Oh boy. Let's see.
  • In the 2006 Blue Beetle series, the eponymous hero's "hideout" is called Hobbiton. His minor enemy, the Diviner, summons Ents.
  • In Secret Origins #20, Barbara Gordon read LotR on the plane from Chicago to Gotham.
  • The Legion of Super-Heroes villain Tseln has a "Mithril silver" knife.
  • Sasha Bourdaux mentions Legolas in Checkmate #4
  • The story in Amethyst (1985) #4 is called "There and Back Again".
  • In Plastic Man (2004) #12, FBI Agent Morgan tracks down an illegal downloader and notices LotR, which she heard was good.
  • Kyle Rayner carries a copy of LotR in Green Lantern (1990) #97
  • Brainiac 5 mentions the One Ring in Legion of Super-Heroes (2010) #1
  • Changeling calls burrowing aliens Hobbits in DC Special: The Return of Donna Troy #2
  • Marvel's got characters named Sauron, Numenor and Aragorn (a winged horse). Sauron actually named himself after the character.
  • Spidey calls his pals the Fellowship in White Tiger #6
  • Billy Kaplan's bedroom door has "Speak Friend and Enter", in Young Avengers Presents #1
  • A boxing match between Slammer Sauron and Freddy Frodo in Avengers #43
  • Justice League of America #43 (2010): Josiah Power quotes Numbers 20:18, and Doctor Impossible is surprised it's from the Bible and not Gandalf (You shall not pass)
That's just the big two. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:12, 15 December 2013 (UTC)
Captain America is reading a "chapter of Tolkien" in Avengers #46 (1967).(reference) --Morgan 20:49, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
So, I created Tolkien's works in popular media/Comics. Not sure about the best way to organize the page, if it could be a mix of article and list, or if it should be one or the other.--Morgan 21:09, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
