    Let's combine the best of both worlds! Which comic book heroes / villains have you found who have a gimmick with pinball? Perhaps a graphic novel about pinball or set in an arcade? Have you spotted any pins in any comic book panels?

    There's the X-Men villain Arcade who first premiered in Uncanny X-Men #123 & dropped our heroes into a giant pinball machine called Murder World.

    Then in the back of Detective Comics #543 - #545 there's a Green Arrow mini-comic featuring a villain called Pinball Wizard who shoots pinballs from tubes mounted on his arms. Yikes!

    What else is out there?

    Here's a unique use for a pinball machine shown in a 1950s "Crime and Punishment" comic book...lost track of which issue, unfortunately. Found on, all non-copyrighted old comics.

    Looks like they remembered to take the legs and head off of it before moving it. Well done mob guys!

    There was a guy out of Vermont that was creating pinball comics. I have a few and will post once I find them

    Ages ago, when I first met Tim Arnold, he made up some very
    funky pinball oriented comics. Long before the PHoF.

    Not really a comic book but close enough?
