    Also, the first stage theme "Streets of Desolation" should seriously be a big Batman song, like the 60s show theme song, and Elfman and Zimmer's themes. If Sunsoft owns the rights to it, WB should buy them.
    Love Killer Moth! With all the extreme anti-batman types cranked out over the decades, he really was the first. Literally reinvents himself to be the antithesis Batman, from his MO to his arsenal full of trickedout themed gadgets, to the mothmobile, moth-cave, moth-signal etc. all re-purposed to help criminals instead. Just that he chose a Moth theme LOL!, and some outrageously garish colors.: p

    Although there has been attempts of redesign. From more visually moth-like, to sleeker armored looks., still could never get away from - wait you chose a moth theme? LOL!
    I remember when the more purple and silver Django Fett was revealed thinking this is where they should be subtly swiping from, with the jet pack swapped for mechanical wings, wrist mounted zip-line, twin-holstered sidearms etc. with the Mando TV show it becomes even more obvious, played right, they could have the not so subtle equivalent of an ongoing Batman vs Mandalorian rivalry playing out in their books.

    Kicking down somebody's door was a pretty standard superhero group applicant opening move back in the day.

    To be fair to Kal, Blok actually did end up joining.

    (If only it was someone with a more interesting power, like Lazon or Neutrax!)

    I would nominate The General. He's a mass murderer, but has a mind for military tactics.

    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.

    Even though I'm a year that image late and your explanation of this character is really cool.

    Bushido was one of those character who were technically before my time but that I took an instant liking and attachment to. It was a supreme and disgusting disservice to his character that they killed him off at all, but especially how they did it. And it's also kinda suspect how no one has ever made amends to rectify this, in spite of ample opportunity to have done so multiple times over by now.

    But no, we apparently can't have a badass Japanese male youth be a hero or be present or nothing.

    Is Blue Devil lesser-known enough? I like old-school, 1980s Blue Devil. But then he got makeover and background ret-con and more angst added in.
