I love the original line-up for The Outsiders, and the farther subsequent Outsiders series have strayed from it the less well I thought the team worked. I'd love to see them show up in the new DCU, because for now it seems like there is no home for characters like Black Lightning, Geo-Force, Halo and Metamorpho. Katana is around in a birds of prey title, but almost unrecognizable from the character I knew from her Outsiders days. It looks like yet another iteration will show up in the new Beware the Batman CGI series that is set to begin soon.
Namor is always a fun character to team folks with because he always clearly has his own agenda. You never know whether he's going to be with you or against you until it's too late to do anything about it. He'll strut in with his speedo, kick your butt and take your woman too, if you aren't careful. Namor don't care! He's the honey badger of comic characters!
