That was I believe a comic set in Brazil and originally written in French specifically for the European market which was later translated and published stateside.

I'm sure you absolutely needed all of that info.

I think I have the story with that OG Batman post included in this anthology, which I have owned since I was maybe 8-9 years old:

Swamp Thing is basically a plant-based Punisher, though. He's never had any qualms about killing. Presumably because he views humanity through the eyes of a rutabaga.

I don’t think that first Batman appearance fits, as it’s not a deliberate kill; but rather the classic self-defense punch which causes the attacker to fall to his death.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 8 August 2019 17:52 (two weeks ago) link

it was real and very charming... at least if you like the more laid-back "teens hanging out" aspects of Claremont's new mutants. Jo Duffy had bigger plans for the title that didn't materialize, so it ended up being kind of a curio. maybe most important for giving Multiple Man several of his ongoing concepts/issues with regard to the dupes having individual lives/experiences. (PAD would then re-do all this in X-Factor without acknowledging the source material.)

one of the new characters, Ariel the teleporter, made minor appearances in the late 2000s san francisco period. the other ones - Gomi and his lobsters, and the power-altering Chance, were never seen again AFAIK. i assume that either claremont or marc silvestri liked the idea of a streetwise, asian-american teen hero, and cooked up Jubilee on the premise that she should have combat-ready powers, or something. i guess we should be grateful Liefeld never saw fit to introduce pouch-laden, rifle-toting lobsters when he brought Siryn in for X-Force.

A few years later he visited Atlantis again to find his friend with more grim and violent than before. He decided to change his own personality and appearance to better match Aquaman. The process actually turned him into a malevolent being and manipulator.

I was going to ask about Super Turtle but but...

His most recent comic book appearance was in issue #3 of the 2008 miniseries Ambush Bug: Year None, in which he plays a role like the one Superboy-Prime played in Infinite Crisis; after living in limbo with Kal-L and company, Super-Turtle (who now calls himself Clark Kent) starts destroying anyone he considers to be a phony Super-Turtle, including Bat-Mite and Connor Kent.

Οὖτις, Monday, 19 August 2019 15:58 (five days ago) link

btw, going back to Comet the Super Horse, let's discuss what Peter David did with the character post Crisis:

http://i.imgur.com/sA4itiY.png

Soon, it was learned that Comet's male form was originally Andrew Jones, a (male) jockey, who had been trampled by horses and "rebuilt" by an organization called "The Stable" as a superhuman with equine DNA. He rebelled against the organization and began operating as a superhero. On one of his first missions he attempted to save a despairing Andrea Martinez (who had just come out to her parents, and been rejected) from an avalanche, but they both died. As with Matrix and Linda Danvers (who had merged into Supergirl, the Angel of Fire), this caused them to combine into one being: the Earth Angel of Love. Comet originally was in love with Supergirl, and since he was the Angel of Love, made her have feelings for him too, but she rejected him when she learned he was also a woman. This opened the door for the third Angel, Blithe, the Angel of Light, to use her powers to exploit Comet's heartbreak, and turn them against Supergirl. She enabled Comet to fully embrace their angel powers, transforming him/herself into a winged centaur. Blithe deceived Comet into joining forces with the Carnivore (a powerful demonic creature who despised the Earth Angels, and sought their power). The Carnivore lost control, however, when Andrea abandoned her anger, learning that her mother had died, and had left a video apology for her actions. The three Earth Angels worked together to stop the Carnivore. Comet began a relationship with Blithe, since she loved both their forms (revealing that Blithe is bisexual).
