OK I admit he’s
wasn’t isn’t the most interesting character of all time, but whose to say that with the right writer and the right team around him he couldn’t be an excellent addition to the new 52?
He would be a great fit in the new DCverse.
What with being one of the most 90’s characters. And DC currently loves the 90s.
He has a damn thighstrap of.. gems?
And the name BLOOD.
