Another Possibility For The Secret Identity Of Mr Oz – And A Prime Suspect From Supergirl’s Past

Posted by September 2, 2017 Comment

At Bleeding Cool, we are more and more settling into the idea of Mr. Oz from the Superman books being Roz-Em, the Kryptonian super-villain who posed at Superman back in Adventure Comics in the sixties.

He had facial surgery to look just like Jor-El’s twin brother — and thus Jor-El as well — and Superman, for that matter.

But there’s another interesting twist we picked up on. Because while most texts recognise the Adventure Comics story with Superboy and a mention in The Phantom Zone #1 comic, there is another that hasn’t been notified by collectors, in Adventure Comics #395 and #396, in a story with Supergirl.

Here, she visits a haunted house…

…once owned by a famous inventor, Amos Amoswell.

…is confronted by the ghost of Jor-El…

…and other created beasts…

…then realises it can’t be Jor-El, but is instead Roz-Em..

…and ends up fighting the inventor of the gadgets that summoned Roz-Em from the Phantom Zone…

…who wears a hooded robe and handles a scythe a little like Mr. Oz…

Could Mr. Oz be Roz-Em, who took his clothes from Amos Amoswell when he later emerged from the Phantom Zone?

Or… could he be Amos Amoswell? Am-Oz Am-Oz-Well? He is a powerful time traveller and reality manipulator.

It’s a theory… indeed, it’s two of them.

What do you think now?
