    Default Crazy-Quilt: a colorful villain!

    Crazy-Quilt (sometimes "Crazy Quilt" without the hyphen) first appeared in Boy Commandos #15 (May-June 1946):


    After tangling a few more times with the Boy Commandos, Crazy-Quilt encountered Robin in Star Spangled Comics #123 (December 1951):


    And in Batman #316 (October 1979), he finally met up with Batman himself.

    This is another ridiculous (at best) D-list villain from yesteryear that I have a massive soft spot for.

    I would probably have first seen him in a UK reprint of Batman #316* and I remembered the look and power for years until I started collecting properly. Batman #316 and #368 are still a fun read.

    There's a cute scene in Johns' Flash run (Wally) where Robin is showing Kid Flash a shelf of trophies from his own rogue's gallery, and Crazy Quilt's helmet is there. That made me laugh.

    I might be wrong but I seem to recall him being eaten by Charaxes during a prison riot in Morrison's JLA? The less said about the Endgame cameo the better.

    *I think I still have a reprint of Batman #309, the Blockbuster Xmas issue which always stuck with me.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    My favorite thing about Crazy Quilt is that he began as a foe of the Boy Commandos...and became a Robin foe.

    I wish more Golden Age villains had been rescued like he was.
