DC Comics Gets Lost With Catwoman #51
Reported by Outsiders - 07:34 AM 2006.01.13
It would seem that even DC Writers and Artist have social lives and know what's going on in the real world by taking selected bits and putting them into their comics.
Take a long look at the image above and see if you can recongize what digital bit was taken from a mysterious island. Scroll down for the answer below if you can't figure it out...
If you look closely at Catwoman's number plate that Gotham's finest give her. The numbers just happen to be the same six digits that have haunted Hurley and the survivors on the hit show, Lost. Catwoman's number plate is 4815162342 while the mystery numbers that were located on the hatch and helped Hurley win the lottery on Lost just happen to be 4-8-15-16-23-42. No real word on why DC threw the numbers in but my guess would be they are big fans of the show or want to see how many people would notice this eye-catcher.
These same numbers are also used in a Veronica Mars episode shown printed on a fortune cookie slip that Dunken gives to Veronica.

Thanxs to KamenDreda for alerting me to my 'Huey' typo. The characters name in Lost is 'Hurley' and not 'Huey'. -- Outsiders
