Obscurity of DC Club -- Reichuss Mansion

Anyone remember the failed heir apparent to Etrigan?

Meet Ame. A 17-year old assistant to a Yakuza boss by day and illegal drag racing driver by night.

She has a persona of a modest individual who handles the day to day operations of a criminal enterprise to one who dress-up in Japanese punk aesthetic with a bad mouth and attitude.

She takes brief control over Etregan after Jason expunged him from his body and found his way to her.

She premiered in DC presents: Demon Driven Out

“Do you know the Quills. No?” Good because if you did you’ll find yourself as soup in their family dinners because they are cannibals.

Peter Milligan and Dean Ormston graphic novel is a story about a family of cannibals who in this black comedy has them travel the country looking for their next meal. It’s a surprisingly good slice of life comic with your occasionally dark humor from the horror of our twisted family.

Cassandra “Cassy” Gills is the teenage daughter who simply wants a boyfriend without her parents trying to eat him. She is my favorite.

Hey, look! It’s a gender-bent scarless Freddy Kruger!

(No really. Look at the glove.)

Haha, yeah, I never watched Smallville but did notice that they leaned heavily on the “power claw” variation of Harriet’s power spikes that came later. From my understanding in the wiki, they made the claws (and other Fury weapons) Kryptonite powered, and the Furies were just normal human fighters… no reason they had to lean so heavily in to the Krueger style. I imagine spikes would have been easier to wear and fight with (both for the actress and character).

Aquaman - Atlantis Chronicles 1990 7 Issue Mini-Series

If you like Aquaman, I highly recommend Peter David’s Atlantis Chronicles. It may not be the most obscure book out there, but it is largely forgotten compared to David’s core Aquaman run.

I loved the 2000s El Diablo series. Was it a rip-off of Ghost rider. Yeah, it was. :smile:

Nonetheless, it’s a good series about a newly established El Diablo, a former criminal boss who gets contracted to seek out evil people like him. Chato is such a interesting anti-villain that made me want more stories about him and other heroes who were former villains or even heroes who still have many villainous traits. I highly recommend this one.

Unfortunately, I think the DCEU has brought El Diablo out of obscurity for the time being. Maybe later, he might be obscure enough to be back on the list, though! A great recommendation!

You’re right about El Diablo being no longer obscure but I did want to highlight a comic book series that was relatively obscure.

Oh I thought you were talking about the character! Thanks for the clarification. It’s on the list now!

I gush over Luke Fox Batwing in my posts and concurrently mention his brother in passing. And while Jace is probably still relatively niche he is not obscure enough to be put on lists like this…But what about Tim?
More specifically a version of Tim that was introduced in DC retroactive by Len Wein.

In this story Tim Fox is still the rebellious kid but now joins a criminal gang called the terrible trio.

No, Tim is not the fox but rather the vulture. Don’t know why but to avoid the obvious I guess? Still a interesting read and would call it obscure enough to have a interesting fact about the Batman in New York.
