    Hourman Suit (Earth-2: Post-Crisis)


    The Hourman Suit is a protective suit used by the late Rex Tyler and later his son, Rick Tyler, as the vigilante, Hourman.

    History[edit | hide | hide all]

    Golden Age[edit | hide]

    The first Hourman

    When Rex Tyler became the vigilante known as Hourman, he began wearing a protective suit to protect himself and conceal his identity. The suit was used until he was killed alongside his wife in the hands of Solomon Grundy, with Pat Dugan retrieving the suit and placing it on display at the JSA headquarters for years.[1][2][3]

    A New Generation[edit | hide]

    Ten years later, while Courtney Whitmore was brought to witness the legacy of the Justice Society of America, she stole multiple gadgets and suits from the building, including the Hourman Suit, Doctor Mid-Nite Suit, Wildcat Suit, Starheart Lantern, and the Thunderbolt.[2]

    Rick Tyler unlocks his powers

    Using the stolen gadgets, Whitmore attempted to reform the Justice Society, later giving the hourglass to Tyler's son, Rick. Rick did not agree to Whitmore's offer to become a hero like the rest of the team, but instead abused his abilities to seek revenge. Rick was soon told by Beth Chapel and the Doctor Mid-Nite A.I. that the death of his parents was not an accident, but the result of Grundy's attack. Rick reluctantly accepted Whitmore's offer, though for revenge, and not justice. The suit was given to Rick soon afterwards, allowing him to succeed his father as the new Hourman.[3][4]

    Overview[edit | hide]

    Designs[edit | hide]

    The suit is a blue skinsuit with a yellow hood and cape. The suit also includes a blue-black mask to conceal its users' identity. Additionally, an hourglass was also worn as a necklace when its users use the suit. The suit consists a golden belt and red stripes on the sleeves as well.[1]

    Functions[edit | hide]

    • Advanced Durability: The suit was proven to be durable as it protected and ensured Rex Tyler's survival after The Wizard shot him with a concussive energy blast.[1]
    • Identity Concealment: The yellow hood and black mask of the suit is able to cover the majority of its users' faces and conceal their identity.
