    They all are in a state of revival today, but sure to wink out of existence in time once more, otherwise Legion of Super-Heroes, Doom Patrol, Green Lantern and Aquaman would all be in the running.

    I recall J'Onn J'Onzz being made the villain several times in his original incarnation, pre-Crisis. And I think it's been done a few times since he was rebooted after Crisis. There's a disconnect...
