The League Of Regrettable Superheroes
The League Of Regrettable Superheroes

You know about Batman, Superman, and Spiderman, but have you heard of Doll Man, Doctor Hormone, or Spider Queen? In The League of Regrettable Superheroes, you’ll meet one hundred of the strangest superheroes ever to see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary. So prepare yourself for such not-ready-for-prime-time heroes as Bee Man (Batman, but with bees), the Clown (circus-themed crimebuster), the Eye (a giant, floating eyeball; just accept it), and many other oddballs and oddities. Drawing on the entire history of the medium, The League of Regrettable Superheroes will appeal to die-hard comics fans, casual comics readers, and anyone who enjoys peering into the stranger corners of pop culture.

Justice League Of America 173
Justice League Of America #173

At Green Arrow’s recommendation, Black Lightning is considered as a prospective Justice League member but the other heroes disagree on his admittance. Meanwhile, a new super-villain surfaces in the person of The Regulator, a former research scientist who has the power to command armies of rats and other vermin. Unaware of the threat he poses, the Justice League continues with its test of Black Lightning’s abilities. Disguised as villains, they battle him while Superman serves as judge of his initiation. Although he passes the test, Black Lightning declines to join the team, claiming prior responsibilities to his solo career.

World’s Finest #146

While Batman visits Superman’s Fortress of Solitude, Superman observes five minutes of silence in Krypton’s memory. Pictures of Krypton stir Batman’s memory of his childhood. He remembers certain places on Krypton that Superman has never revealed to him. He also recalls flying on Earth. Batman believes that he too may be from Krypton.   Investigation of the mystery leads Batman to Dr. Thomas Ellison, a friend of his father. Bruce finds photographs in Ellison’s possession which confirm his suspicions. Ellison also withholds a secret belief that he caused Krypton’s destruction. Superman follows Batman to Ellison’s home, where the Caped Crusader is attempting to learn the truth. Ellison explains that using a telescope, he observed Krypton prior to the planet’s destruction. Toddler Bruce Wayne who lived next door to Ellison also observed Krypton. Ellison taught Bruce Kryptonian lore and using wires made it appear that Bruce could fly, accounting for Bruce’s memories. Ellison also observed that a reaction was building inside Krypton. He attempted to stop it using a neutralizing ray, but instead the device accelerated Krypton’s destruction. Superman is angered over the revelation. He uses a time-scope to force Ellison to watch his parents die. While watching, Superman and Ellison both see Jor-EL and Lara monitoring Krypton’s impending doom. Jor-EL detects Ellison’s intervention, but observes that the neutralizing ray has no effect. Krypton then explodes. Ellison’s conscious is finally cleared after learning that he was not responsible for destroying Krypton. Superman apologizes for his anger and thanks Ellison for attempting to save his world.
