    I guess specifying super beings rules out Tim Drake...curses. His buddies Superboy and Impulse make the cut with their solo series. And Azrael...I read all 100 issues of that and it was just so awful...I couldn't ever understand why that one lasted so long.


When I publish our final list I won't use the word "superbeing" any more. It rules out Tim Drake, as you say, and that's just too silly to be tolerated. Right now I'm leaning toward "amazing adventurer" as that seems broad enough to capture what I mean. Also, an amazing adventurer doesn't have to be a good guy, and in fact could fall anywhere on the Dungeons & Dragons scale, which is, as we all know, the best morality classification system ever invented since the dawn of time. See pic.

Impulse is in, by the way. Thanks for remembering him.

Oh, and guess who else is in? Deathstroke! His series ran to issue 65 and he was created in 1980!

Also, if Hellboy is in, then I guess the Tick should likewise get in. He never had an issue #50 but he had well over 50 issues.
