    Default Brand New Superhero

    Shortly after Crisis on Infinite Earths, Booster Gold was a brand new super hero created in his own series. I think in a few months or whenever DC makes more on going titles, DC should create a brand new super hero that isn't a legacy character like Robin, Blue Beetle ect. and that doesn't appear in a crisis. And when was the last time we had a hero appear in his own book #1 at DC? Was it Booster?

    I know but they have to throw a bat on someone or have him appear in someone else's book. I'd just like a "New Super Hero #1" and go from there. Without ties to other characters, but of course he'd meet other characters and be in the same universe. That hasn't happened in forever.

    I understand the marketing angle, but can't we just throw a new character out there and see how he does?

    Aztech? That's the last thing I remember as a brand new hero with a solo title in the DCU, without ties to an existing character, no Bat this, Super that, Flash this, Green Lantern that, etc. But I'm not a DCU historian, by any means. My guess is Aztech. I liked him. Dead now. There must be another...

    Zauriel had a mini, he was unique enough. I liked him too. Another Grant Morrison creation.

    Breach, the Monolith and Simon Dark. Also the Bloodhound. None of them worked out, sadly.

    Manhunter. Sure there was Manhunter before, but the Manhunter DA lady was certainly her own character...

    Wasn't she, like, the granddaughter of Iron Munroe and the original Phantom Lady?

    All-new characters with their own books and NO legacy ties?

    Post-Crisis, things start getting tight for non-legacies:
    Booster Gold (and even HE had a Legion Flight Ring)
    Vext
    Heckler
    Aztek
    Zauriel
    Breach (although isn't he REALLY just a redressed Captain Atom?)
    Monolith
    Simon Dark
    Bloodhound
    Magog
    Chase
    Major Bummer
    Lobo
    Triumph
    Hitman
    Argus
    Anima
    Gunfire

    Hmmm, I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

    I'd count him... connections to Vandal Savage and Immortal man aside, I honestly believe that he was CONCEIVED as a whole-cloth new character.

    I don`t even think such connections disqualify him. He was his own character, it`s just that he was inserted in DCU.
