    Fred Hembeck is a treasure. Love those strips from the old Daily Planet columns.

    I have a real soft spot for a singing cowboy superhero/movie star from the '40s. James Robinson wrote a very good Vigilante miniseries in the late '90s called Vigilante: City Lights, Prairie Justice. The only thing I didn't love about it was some crude art by Tony Salmons.

    But this might be the best Vigilante-related thing ever, where he sings a Marty Robbins-style ballad on Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

    The Vigilante was also one of the few comic heroes to make his way to the screen during the Golden Age.

    Also, according to Grant Morrison, he's a werewolf. I think that's important
