    Default Favorite Characters That Appeared First In Non-Comics Media

    With the numerous adaptations of the DCU in various tv shows, movies and other media, we've had characters debut in these adaptations instead of in the comics. Some have been brought into the comics, others have not but hopefully will be. Of these characters that debuted in adaptations of the DCU, which was your favorite?

    Mine are (in no order of appearance):

    Livewire (Superman: The Animated Series)

    Red X (Teen Titans 2006 Animated Series)

    Terry McGinnis (Batman Beyond)

    Harley Quinn (Batman: The Animated Series)

    Chloe Sullivan (Smallville)

    Harley

    Rene Montoya

    Skinny Alfred

    Flying Superman ; )

    the Flash TV version of Cisco Ramon/Vibe

    And the Hanna Barbera created Superfriends and their JLU/YJ analogs I'll always have a place for:

    Apache/ Tye/ Long Shadow
    Samurai/ Toshio Eto/ Wind-dragon
    Vulcan/ Buster "Lightning" Jones/ Juice
    Eduardo/ El "Desperado" /Dorado
    And the Exor Twins! / Zan & Jayna / Downpour & Shifter




    Notwithstanding the few slight re-imaginings/cameos e.g. Manitou Raven, the Twins, I do wish at least one version of this group would actually exist together as a legit team in DCU canon.

    Actually, Renee was created for the show, but appeared in the comics first.

    Livewire (Superman: Animated Series) - She was a cool addition for the Man of Steel's gallery.

    Harley Quinn (Batman: Animated Series; Batman Arkham Games) - I know she appeared in the old Batman animated series first but she never clicked on too me, I actually liked her in the Arkham Games.

    Phantasm (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm) - She was cool and intimidating, I was surprised that Andrea was the Phantasm.

    Terry McGinnis (Batman Beyond) - He was awesome, one of my first Batman while I was watching as a kid.

    Ethan Bennet (The Batman 2005 animated series) - I liked him he was a good friend to Bruce Wayne, he was good as Clayface.

    Red X (Teen Titans 2003 series) - I would like to see him appear on the Teen Titans, as an Anti-Robin.

    Control Freak (Teen Titans 2003 series) - He would be a great 'villain' of the TT and surprising ally.

    Mumbo Jumbo (Teen Titans 2003 series) - I liked him he was a fun villain who loves to play trick on the teen titans.

    Mother Mae Eye (Teen Titans 2003 series) - Same as Mumbo Jumbo but more creeper.

    Kaldur'ahm/Aqualad (Young Justice) - He was badass. I prefer him over Garth, I never liked him anyways.

    John Diggle (Arrow)

    Harrison Wells (The Flash) - Wildcard of the Flash series.

    Razer (Green Lantern: Animated Series)

    Aya (Green Lantern: Animated Series)

    I know this is sort of a cheat but I like Jinx from the 2003 Teen Titan series more than her comic counterpart.

    Richard Dragon and the Bronze Tiger.
    So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God. So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath. So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul". So I hit him. What would you do?

    Harley, but I feel like that's being Pavlovian at this point. I'd say, besides her, it would be Nora Fries--though she doesn't really do much in either medium. I'm also just going to add Freeze too, cause it's pretty obvious the animated series rewrote almost everything about there is to him, apart from his gimmick. Phantasm was neat. Artemis was awesome, I miss her. That's pretty much it.

    Bronze Tiger and Richard Dragon appeared in Dragon's Fists, a NOVEL written by Denny O'Neil.
    I know things,
    SECRET things.
    I might post about such things sometimes,
    but I doubt it.
