I thought that The Vigilante was the best character to spin out of Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans. I loved his simplified look and tough as nails personality and I felt he made a good foil for Dick Grayson. It's too bad that he did not catch on more with the comics audience, perhaps he was seen as a Punisher knock off? At any rate, after the Adrian Chase version took his own life, the concept never really rebounded. I will say that I did give the recent Vigilante series that sprung out of the pages of Nightwing a shot and found it to be pretty enjoyable. I don't think it sold very well though, and that's a shame. Perhaps he can fin a home as a supporting character in the new Nightwing series.
