    Speaking of obscure characters I'm fond of, the iteration of the Green Team Teen Trillionaires that was out during the same time was super fun. Despite it's short run of 5 issues before being cancelled, I became quite invested in them.

    Honestly, most of what I like or have grown to like tends to come from books that are super short lived in the last 8 years or so. New 52 was my jam for books like that.
    Burden! Yeah, I remember my first reaction when I first read that was... wow. Awful parents. Because he first refers to himself as Burden, not his real name.

    Richard Dragon, in particular, his "retired badass™" portrayal in various Question/Huntress-related stories.

    The last issue they came back to the main Earth after being trapped on another for months (and a place in between realities).

    David Zavimbe, I really dug his New 52 run but it never materialized anything spectacular and then they shelved him to give his mantle to Luke Fox; with a nice little insult by retconning David was Bruce's second choice. They left him wanting to "go his own way" so I would love if they reintroduced him as a new hero. Maybe have him working with Lord Battle (who I am absolutely in love with as a concept from David's run) as a way to give him some kind of ability to make him stand out.

    At least until #50 (when Lobdell's current plans for the series ends). After that, depends on what happens with the series going forwards.

    I like Empress from PAD's Young Justice. I like her because of her backstory, her parents, her friendships with Cassie and Cissie, and her amazing powers and gear. She has tactile teleportation, fighting skills, and magick.

    my obscure characters that I appreciate are Captain Atom and Doctor Mid-Nite (Pieter Cross). Cap's last mini series was just some crazy stuff that didn't fit, was hoping for more after he started making apperances again. As for Cross...I don't know with the Justice Society/JSA return if it'll be him as the good Doctor returning. Wish he could've survived New 52 just like Mister Terrific did.

    My favorite is probably Alpha Centurion.

    I love the idea of a brilliant human-out-of-time, who through will, technology, and alternative tactics can equal Superman.

    I also love Baron Winters

    I adore the mysterious, supernatural, Machiavellian string-puller type characters.

    A few favorites that are relatively obscure, but not totally.

    1. OMAC, both Buddy Blank and Kevin Kho.

    Buddy's Omac was Captain America, in the future. It was a really fun book to read, but Jack Kirby didn't get to finish it. I re-read it from time to time, I mean, the first story has him blow up a factory full of robot sex dolls.

    Kevin's OMAC was a cyborg version of the hulk, people who didn't like Mark Waid's run at the time called OMAC the best hulk book on the stands. I miss reading about them. They were a lot of fun.

    2. Caitlin Fairchild. Caitlin, like Power Girl before her, has been written off as a male-gaze-y fanservice character, and admittedly she kind of was, but she's more than that. She's a computer scientist, a capable leader and strategist.

    What about some of the freaky looking Lanterns in the Sinestro Corps?

    Some of them should get at least a mini or one-shot.

    Agreed on both of these. I wish Claw the Unconquered was treated as DC’s premiere “fantasy” hero, ala Conan the Barbarian. And the Warlord is basically a whole D&D world right at the center of DC’s Earth - incredible concept.

    I also love the Haunted Tank. The ghost of a Confederate general haunting a tank that fought Nazis is just amazing to me.
