DC Full (Maybe) Encyclopedia

Hi everyone! On the last Office Hours, I told @CKComics that I would make a DC encyclopedia. Only issue: I don’t have enough time, nor do I have enough knowledge! So, I thought Hey! Why don’t I make this a fun-community-fun-time-encyclopedia-thing-extravaganza-DC-facts-page-type-thing?! So here we are! Any facts you think are missing, just add 'em! Unless you don’t want to; then, just tell me to— I’ll get to it… eventually!

Now, @CKComics gave us a bit of guidelines in his initial request. We should have storylines, characters, locations, and more!

I’m gonna start tomorrow, but if you want to start tonight, feel free!

Codename: Hitman

Real Name: Tom “Tommy” Monaghan

First Appearance: The Demon — Annual 2 (1993)

Origin: Tommy Monaghan was just another hitman (get the name?) in Gotham. What set him apart from the other paid killers is that he only killed people who deserved it. Heroes and cops were always spared. Things were going semi-decently for him until Bloodlines. During the Bloodlines event, Tommy was attacked by a brutal demon, Glonth, but he survived. Not only did he survive, he thrived! He gained the abilities to read minds and to see through anything. Now, Tommy does the same exact jobs, but with superpowers! And he has to deal with not being killed by the mob. Or the government. Or demons. But hey! At least he’s friends with Superman!
