LaMonica Garrett, who portrayed the Monitor and his evil counterpart, the Anti-Monitor, on “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” recognized the heroism of essential workers battling the coronavirus (COVID-19) with an image of two doctors that shows they are more than ordinary mortals.
The image showcases two doctors socially distancing in front of a blank concrete wall. However, while they may seem like regular doctors, their shadows show the outlines of DC Comics heroes Wonder Woman and Superman.
Garrett is not the first to honor frontline workers with comic-theme content. Metropolis, Illinois showed its support by applying a mask to the giant Superman statue that stands in front of the county courthouse. Meanwhile, ECC Ediciones — the publisher behind Spain’s translated DC Comics titles — released a free digital comic starring the Man of Steel that celebrates essential workers.
As the Monitor and Anti-Monitor, Garrett was featured in both the “Elseworlds” and “Crisis” crossovers on The CW. He was a prominent part of the final season of Arrow and appeared on Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow as well.
