    Default What are some of your favorite lesser known DC characters?

    DC easily has my favorite comic book universe of all time but I typically find that I prefer their lesser known characters to their more mainstream heroes.
    I am genuinely curious about what everyones favorite B list characters are and why.

    I have a few that I really enjoy:

    1. Swamp Thing - Easily my favorite comic book character of all time. He has great powers, a rich mythos and an interesting perspective on plant life.
    2. Animal Man - I love Animal Man because of his powers and his personality. I think he's a funny and stand up dude.
    3. Jonah Hex - Badass. Just pure badass. He's essentially the ultimate spaghetti western comic book character. Dude is rough, tough, mean, but he secretly has a heart of gold.

    DC's extensive and exquisite collection of lesser known characters is one of the things that makes the company shine. I'll always love these guys:



    EDIT - Sorry, the OP also asked for reasons why you love the less famous characters so.

    The Metal Men - A group of robots created by genius scientist Dr. Will Magnus. Each robot is powered by a 'responsometer' and takes on the abilities and personalities of different metallic elements. Constantly bickering, occasionally dysfunctional but ultimately coming through as a 'family' if you will. This is an example of DC Comics at it's most brilliantly quirky.

    I could also have a field day talking about lesser known Legion members.

    My favorite DC character will always be Cassandra Cain. However, my second favorite is someone barely anyone has ever heard of.

    1) Batwing (David Zavimbe, and Massacre as a villain)
    2) Deadman
    3) The Demon Knights (not Etrigan or Vandal though)
    4) Andrew Bennett

    Also if you count Zatanna she would be first, I think she's too important for this though.
    Current Pull: Lazarus, The Realm, Seven to Eternity, Aquaman, Flash, Justice League Dark, Justice League Odyssey, Sideways, Black Panther, Captain America, Daredevil, Death of the Inhumans.

    Future Pull: Killmonger.

    Most people really haven't heard of Empress; if anything they get her confused with Enchantress.

    Oh goodness, so many actual Legionnaires, including rarely seen or mentioned folk like Karate Kid 2 (Myg) or Tyroc or newer/ish Legionnaires like Tellus or Dragonwing, or Rebooters like Dragonmage or Kid Quantum 2, or Threebooters like Dream Boy or Gazelle, but also Academy students like Nightwind and Crystal Kid and Laurel Kent, and members of other future-teams like Quantum Queen and Gas Girl, and random future villains like Lazon and the Emerald Empress. There's just so many cool characters!

    Plus the not-uncommon folk like Shadow Lass, obviously.

    And, the characters that never were, because DC didn't pull the plug on them, like Wolverine and Nightcrawler and Belladonna and Trio.

    Let’s not forget Wildfire. Coupled with Starfire and Blackfire.
    They really liked using “fire” as a suffix for codenames.
