    It's a shame how DC has neglected the Fawcett characters...and their other purchases.

    Actually, how much of the Fawcett line DC "purchased" is up for debate.

    And there's also a problem of how many writers / artists want to use the older non-DC heroes, not to mention how the might get "used" when they're not being ignored.

    I did not know this.

    Many Fawcett characters are in the public domain. Anyone can use them.

    A lawyer who ...brings to justice those who escape the law through legal loopholes.

    Realized that Marc Andreyko used a similar character motivation for Kate Spencer in his Manhunter book.

    “What are we going to do tonight, Brian?”
    “The same thing we do every night, Pinky... dress in ridiculous costumes and fight crime.”
    “Narf!”
