    If people are going to start multiple threads with the same topic, I guess I'll post it here too.

    I'm hoping the Stargirl TV series keeps pulling from Infinity Inc. and if any Green Lantern related characters (now that Courtney snagged Alan Scott's Power Battery) it's revealed to be a young Jade and Obsidian who connect with it.
    Although they don't actually use the Lantern, it may just be to reveal a connection to their father.

    I would love to see Jade & Obsidian get some spotlight again.
    I do wonder if the new StarGirl show that's re-purposing some of the "lesser known" Infinity Inc. characters as Jr.JSA, can similarly be used as a vehicle to bring in Jade & Obsidian.

    I can see them brought into that universe, as brooding withdrawn teenage siblings (afraid of their own powers), as runaway types, or in Courtney's school.

    And exploring the mother reveal story arc --

    She has a pretty cool visual! Here's one with potential for a popular redesign.

    I took the spoiler tags away because it's been long enough, but that was a different Manhunter. The one in the picture was a clone of Paul Kirk, the original Manhunter.

    Unfortunately, she had the same name as a Legion of Super-Heroes member...so she was replaced with a female Firebrand.

    I would guess that DC has over 25,000 characters...but, yeah, that is basically true.

    I figured if he was nominating the character, he might not know about Leviathan.

    On the hero side, Peacemaker. Feels like someone could writer a decent spy/thriller series using him.

    On the villain side, Terra-Man (Pre-Crisis) because a time displaced space cowboy outlaw is a fun concept.

    Plastic Man probably works most effectively when he’s drawn in a spontaneous, yet hardcore manner, like how Jack Cole drew him.

    Erron Black from Mortal Kombat has showed me that the concept can work.

    Oh, that makes sense.
    Firebrand has a much less striking visual, thought.

    I think there can be room for both Drake and Carol, especially with Drake being from the future and Carol being from the past who could potentially live into the present as a result of being gifted by a mystical god.

    Good point; i've never minded characters having the same name (especially a thousand years apart).
    Theres only so many combinations of things you can realistically do. Plus its funny if and when they meet, or someone points out they know another captain whatever or whatever man.

    Bring Lorena back! Who cares about Tula and Dolphin (eww!)

    As for under utilized characters, all characters not belonging to the Big DC franchises (ie Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Shazam, Hawkman/Hawkgirl) .
