Elongated Man

Elongated Man is a fictional character, a superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. His first appearance was in The Flash vol. 1, #112. The character has won and been nominated for several awards over the years, including winning the 1961 Alley Award for Best Supporting Character. Elongated Man was created by writer John Broome and penciler Carmine Infantino, with significant input from editor Julius Schwartz, who wanted a new supporting character for the Flash. Julius Schwartz has noted that Elongated Man was only created because he had not realized that Plastic Man was available due to character rights having been obtained by DC in 1956; however and inker Murphy Anderson stated that he never used him as a reference for anything. Elongated Man received a solo backup feature in Detective Comics, where he was redefined as a detective who loves odd mysteries and travels the United States in a convertible with his wife, searching for them. Sometimes they would travel the world or meet other DC superheroes like Batman, Green Lantern, the Atom and Zatanna.

This feature became sporadic throughout the'70s. However, in 1973, he became a member of the Justice League of America, he is seen in that title from 1973 to 1995; as a teenager, Ralph Dibny was fascinated by contortionists, or people who displayed feats of agility and suppleness. He learned that all of the body-benders he spoke with drank a popular soda called "Gingold." Ralph set to work learning chemistry and developed a super-concentrated extract of the rare "gingo" fruit of the Yucatan, which gave him his elasticity. In his first appearance, the Flash suspects the Elongated Man is behind several crimes, but the Elongated Man helps capture the criminals, who reveal they used a helicopter to frame him. Ralph Dibny was one of the earliest Silver Age DC heroes to reveal his secret identity to the public, one of the first to marry his love interest. After teaming up with several other superheroes like Batman, Green Lantern, the Atom and the Justice League of America, he became a member of the team.

His wife became a member as well. The couple was notable in having a stable and trouble-free marriage—an anomaly in the soap operatic annals of super hero comic books. Ralph Dibny played a central role in the events of Identity Crisis, with the main arc of the series revolving around the DC Universe's response to the murder of Sue Dibny; the healthy, stable relationship between Ralph and Sue, the events that led to and resulted from her death, were used as primary narrative devices throughout the series for examining the respective personal relationships of other JLA and JSA members. The effect of Sue's death on Ralph would come to shape his character in the events following Identity Crisis culminating at the end of the weekly series 52. Ralph and Sue appeared as members of the Justice League offshoot the Super Buddies in the miniseries Formerly Known as the Justice League and its sequel story arc "I Can't Believe It's Not The Justice League" published in JLA: Classified #4-9; the latter arc was published afterwards.

A running joke in "I Can't Believe It's Not The Justice League" involves the possibility of Sue's pregnancy. In the 2006 weekly series 52, a grief-stricken Ralph Dibny is contemplating suicide when he is informed that Sue's gravestone has been vandalized with an inverted version of Superman's'S' symbol—the Kryptonian symbol for resurrection, he confronts Cassandra Sandsmark, she tells Dibny that she is in a cult that believes that Superboy can be resurrected. She steals Ralph's wedding ring. During Week 11, after scaring some cult members and chasing them off, he gets a report that someone broke into a storage container in Opal City and stole Sue's clothes. In Week 12, Ralph finds Wonder Girl and she tells him they stole the clothes and ring to make a Sue dummy, she invites him to the ceremony. During Week 13, Ralph goes to the ceremony. Metamorpho, Green Arrow and Hal Jordan come with him. Despite his initial agreement and his friends disrupt the ceremony, but the effigy of Sue crawls to Dibny and calls out to him as it burns.

During Week 18, other members of the Croatoan Society: Detective Chimp, Terri Thirteen, Edogawa Sangaku find Tim Trench dead with the helmet of Doctor Fate, Nabu. Ralph asks for help from Shadowpact, Detective Chimp's other group. A voice from within the helm of Doctor Fate, unheard by the other members of the group, speaks to Dibny and promises to fulfill his desires if he makes certain sacrifices. Dibny journeys with the helm through the afterlives of several cultures, where he is cautioned about the use of magic. During Week 27, the Spectre promises to resurrect Sue in exchange for Dibny's taking vengeance on Jean Loring, but Dibny is unable to do so. During Week 32, Ralph gets into a fight with the Yeti; the Perfect Accomplished Physician comes to the rescue. Both he and the Yeti are members of defenders of China. At Nanda Parbat, Rama Kushna tells Dibny, "The end is written". During week 42, Dibny is in Dr. Fate's tower, he begins the spell to resurrect Sue, puts on the helmet of Fate, shoots it, revealing Felix Faust, posing as Nabu.

Faust planned to trade Dibny's soul to Neron in exchange for his own freedom. Ralph reveals that he was aware of Faust's identity for some time, that the bind

Amazophrynella

Amazophrynella is a genus of toads in the family Bufonidae. They are found throughout the Amazon Basin. Amazophrynella was separated from Dendrophryniscus in 2012 based on molecular genetic evidence that indicated deep divergence between an Amazonian and an Atlantic Forest clade, the latter retaining the name Dendrophryniscus whereas the former was described as a new genus Amazonella amended to Amazophrynella because of homonymy; the analysis suggested that Amazophrynella is the sister taxon of Dendrophryniscus, but a study has suggested a more distant relationship. Amazophrynella are small toads measuring 12–27 mm in snout–vent length; the hind limbs are well developed. The parotoid glands are absent, as are tympana; the skin is finely granulose. Dorsal coloration is cryptic. Amazophrynella are pond breeders, an ancestral trait in bufonids. There are twelve recognized species: Amazophrynella amazonicola Rojas, Carvalho, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2015 Amazophrynella bilinguis Kaefer, Ferrão, Farias & Lima, 2019 Amazophrynella bokermanni Amazophrynella javierbustamantei Rojas-Zamora, Carvalho, Ávila, Farias and Gordo, 2016 Amazophrynella manaos Rojas, Carvalho, Ávila and Hrbek, 2014 Amazophrynella matses Rojas, Carvalho, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2015 Amazophrynella minuta Amazophrynella moisesii Rojas-Zamora, Ron, Hernández-Ruz, Melo-Sampaio, Vogt, Pinheiro, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2018 Amazophrynella siona Rojas-Zamora, Ron, Hernández-Ruz, Melo-Sampaio, Vogt, Pinheiro, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2018 Amazophrynella teko Rojas-Zamora, Ron, Hernández-Ruz, Melo-Sampaio, Vogt, Pinheiro, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2018 Amazophrynella vote Ávila, Gordo, Kawashita-Ribeiro, Morais, 2012 Amazophrynella xinguensis Rojas-Zamora, Ron, Hernández-Ruz, Melo-Sampaio, Vogt, Pinheiro, Ávila, Farias and Hrbek, 2018
