Kid Eternity - Sherlock Holmes
Sometimes it isn't brawn or pugilistic skills Kid Eternity requires (see last two posts), but brain power and problem solving acuity. Who then better to call upon than the incomparable Sherlock Holmes, the world's greatest consulting detective. Holmes may be a fictional character but as the Kid says, "He lives in the hearts of those who read about him. He exists in eternity." Which may explain a bit about the nature of Eternity as the creators of Kid Eternity realised it. At any rate, Holmes is called forth, works his mental magic and is returned to Eternity to sleuth another day. The figure I used was from Superior Models/Perth Pewter and was part of a two-figure set of Holmes and Watson. The figures were modeled after Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, who portrayed the characters in a series of 14 feature films between 1939 and 1946.
