Bob Hope (May 29, 1903 – July 27, 2003) was an English-born entertainer who appeared in vaudeville, on Broadway, in radio, television, movies, and on numerous USO tours for U.S. military personnel. In 1950, National Periodical Publications began licensing the right to use celebrity images, including Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Alan Ladd, and Bob Hope. Bob Hope was given his own comic book humor series titled The Adventures of Bob Hope. Issue #1 (cover dated February-March 1950) set the tone for most of the 1950s. The lead story would feature Hope in a misadventure similar to his film roles; the back up stories tended to revolve around movie-related themes or characters. For example, issue #1 had a story on Rhonda Fleming, Hope's co-star in the 1949 film The Great Lover. By the 1960s, sales for the Hope series began to flag. The editors attempted to add some contemporary humor by introducing the character of Super-Hip in issue #95. Despite the changes, the series was canceled; issue #109 (February-March 1968) was the last.
- This character is a fictional representation of Bob Hope, a real person. More information on this person can be found at Wikipedia.org.
- While Adventures of Bob Hope was a licensed title and DC Comics does not own the stories (or the character of Bob Hope), DC does own the original characters they created for the series, including Hope's nephew Super-Hip and Hope's talking dog Harvard Harvard III.
- In Crisis on Infinite Earths: Absolute Edition , the pre-Crisis adventures of the fictional character Bob Hope in his own title were assigned to Earth-Twelve. (Before that, it was not clear where they fit.)
- Although this character was originally introduced as an inhabitant of DC's Pre-Crisis Earth-Twelve reality, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
