Since the fall of Tower Comics, the rights to ''T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents'' have been around a bit. Currently, DCComics has the license and has been printing collections of the original stories in their Archives format. DC also launched a new ''T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents'' title in November 2010. It appears to be a "next generation" sequel to the original Tower stories, with [=NoMan=] being the only returning member (due to his [[WhoWantsToLiveForever effective immortality]].)

* ActionGirl: The [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] series didn't have a lot of female characters, but the ones they had were pretty competent:

** More noteworthy, perhaps, is the loss of Menthor in issue #8, not only one of T.H.U.N.D.E.R.'s original "Big Three", but arguably the first major superhero death of the SilverAge.

''T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents'' was a comic book series originally published by Tower Comics in the 1960s, which might be briefly described in XMeetsY fashion as ''The ComicBook/FantasticFour [[TheManFromUNCLE from U.N.C.L.E]]''. The characters debuted in ''T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents'' #1 (November, 1965), created by Wally Wood. The series lasted for 20 issues, ending in November, 1969. It concerns the activities of The Higher United Nations Defence Enforcement Reserves, an international organization devoted to preserving the world from {{Diabolical Mastermind}}s, {{Alien Invasion}}s, and other threats too large for a single nation to handle alone.

* {{Pun}}: Dynamo, agent of T.H.U.N.D.E.R., gets his powers from "the Thunderbelt". (The character's creator actually thought of the Thunderbelt first, then picked T.H.U.N.D.E.R.'s name to make it work.)

* CanonImmigrant: Davy Jones, U.N.D.E.R.S.E.A. Agent, was originally the star of his own Tower Comics series. Despite a couple of solo story appearances in the pages of T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, it was never clear if his adventures took place in the same universe or not. Beginning with one of the multiple 1980ís revivals, however, he was folded into the main organization. This appears to be canon to the D.C . revival, which included a cameo of both the 1960ís and 1990ís versions in a montage/flashback sequence.
