Quote:As for Vibe, I don't know where he is these days. For all we know, he could be dead or retired. My question is whatever happened to the Hank Heywood Steel from Detroit? Did he get a New 52 introduction?
Not to my knowledge, I am not sure any of the Heywoods exist in an active capacity. Steel was never a favourite but his origin was quite horrific in retrospect, today it is too close to Victor Stone's so if anyone had a desire to ressurect the character his origin would likely be somewhat different. Perhaps more in line with The Bionic Man...?
It might be worth exploring, but really, where would he fit in in todays DCU. It was amazing that Vibe made such a comeback, Gypsy followed in his shadow, but Steel it seems interest no one at DC...
