Rick Vietch had one of the most inventive super-detectives with his Question series in comics. At heart, Ditko’s heroes are strangely compelling because they embrace their innately criminal nature.
Killjoy is probably my favorite. I’m surprised DC hasn’t done a series out of him since he was Deadpool meets Spider-Man before Deadpool even existed.
Maybe Killjoy wasn’t a part of the original Charlton deal but I was pretty sure he was an influence on The Comedian.
