'When we decided we were gonna move forward with an imprint, Dan [DiDio] handed me an encyclopedia of DC characters and let me go through it. I found this entry that was super small, and it was Cave Carson. And I was like, “Who the hell is Cave Carson?” It said nothing about him really except that he was a spelunker, and he had a cybernetic eye, and I was like, “That’s it. It’s all about this eye.” There really wasn’t any info on it. It was just a cosmetic device that the writer of Resurrection Man had put in there to show that time had passed for the character, that he had adventures. But no one ever explained how he got the eye.' -- Gerard Way

Later, back home, Cave is visited by a member of the underground kingdom of Muldroog, who manages to say something about the realm being in grave danger before he undergoes a transformation:

So, eye that gives you Sherlock Scan?

Also, though Doom Patrol does it a bit more for me than this book, I love that that's how Way decided he was going to write Cave Carson. "That's it. It's all about his eye."

I can't believe someone remembers Wild Dog. Then again, I can't believe someone remembers Cave Carson.

Well, Wild Dog is in the current season of ARROW, although I'm sure this was planned and written without knowledge of that.

Still, I love when creators use very minor characters like this. People who recognise them get the treat of seeing an old favourite return, and people who don't get a new character they can look up and explore.

I hope he keeps reading through to the end and finds out about Zuggernaut, the Firestorm villain who was a blatant Guyver ripoff.

At last, we have a logical arch-enemy for Jaime Reyes.. who is all but a Guyver himself!
