Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, A Dino Who’s Blue

(Art by Jo Chen, Marvel Comics)

What do you need to know about comics’ most famous Deinonychus antirrhopus? Old Lace is a genetically engineered dinosaur made for one Gertrude Yorkes by Gert’s evil, time-traveling, mad-scientist parents. Old Lace and Gert shared a psychic link that enabled them to feel each other’s pain and communicate almost completely.

Old Lace’s powers include the psychic link, razor-sharp claws and wit, a great sense timing, and being totally rad. She isn’t currently in any books but be sure you check out Brian K. Vaughn’s truly amazing Runaways in trade!
