    I never knew The Bureau of Missing Villains existed - thanks Major Hoy!

    I love these crazy Batman villains and want to revamp them all.

    In the 70s when I was a kid, a friend had a Batman storybook and record set that was about Man-Bat and the "SCREEEEEEEEEECH" sound effect on the record for Man-Bat's echolocation was tErRiFyInG to me!

    This reminds me that I have Terrible Trio storyline to work on and finalize, along with another Batman story that uses a lot of these more colorful and gimmicky characters, in the vein of King's work on Kite-Man.

    Don't forget we have this thread:
    The Terrible Trio (Fox, Shark, and Vulture) Appreciation Thread

    Also, the concept was later brought back in the three-issue Prestige Format Doctor Mid-Nite series by Matt Wagner and John K. Snyder III in 1999, as well as a teen female version in Gotham Academy Second Semester.

    One more:

    from Batman Family #16 (February-March 1978)

    As to that "only appearance" comment, that would change in Batman #312 (June 1979).

    BATMAN WIKI has an article of this concept, although they add more villains then actually appear in BATMAN FAMILY.

    The only missing villain these days is Ed Peale, aka The Gong.

    Others who got the "Villain of the Issue" treatment included . . . Cluemaster in Batman Family #2 (November-December 1975):

    That story was originally printed in Detective Comics #351 (May 1966).

    Kite Man was the "Villain of the Issue" for Batman Family #3 (January-February 1976):




    That story originally was printed in Batman #133 (August 1960), though for some reason Kite Man was not featured on that issue's cover.

    The King of The Cats...isn't he supposed to be Selina Kyle's brother?
