Alan Moore[edit]

By the 1980s, the acclaimed author Alan Moore provided a more cynical reason for his visits to Rann. Apparently, the population of the planet--the majority of whom viewed the Terran with contempt--is sterile, and the real reason for Adam's presence is to be a breeding stud.

Can anyone identify the issues in which Moore wrote this angle? Have these stories been collected?Bjones 23:24, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:52twenty.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:52twenty.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Zeta Beam Location[edit]

Didn't Adam need to be in a certain spot in the Australian Outback to transport to Rann? Because I remember a Swamp Thing issue where his desert spot was now a mall bathroom and he barely made it. If the Zeta Beam was fixed, this should be noted. Among many other things. Lots42 (talk) 17:34, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

In the original, Gardner Fox-scripted series, Adam had to be at a specific spot somewhere in the southern hemisphere to meet each beam, but not necessarily in Australia. They struck the Earth's surface at various points, which, thanks to data from Zardath, he was able to calculate. --Ted Watson (talk) 21:30, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Adam Strange is also a music artist[edit]

See, e.g., [1]. Don't know if it's notable enough; it's a theme song for the Madventures. --Sigmundur (talk) 10:35, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
