🎃 :characters_of_dc: Boston Brand: Deadman 🎃 :characters_of_dc:

Hello members of the @CharactersOfDC and welcome to our special Halloween edition of this club. This month’s Character of the Month is a personal favorite of mine. He is a man who made his living swing going from the trapeze until he was killed and found himself continuing to exist as a ghost who, through the intervention of the Hindu goddess Rama Kushna, has the power to possess any living being he chooses. Let’s explore this fascinating character and see what we learn.
