one thing about Cheetah is that I thought she was WAY hotter than Diana in the Wonder Woman outfit in that episode where the Legion altered the past
I totally agree with you.

I'll give Nightwing credit for trying to give Dick his own rogues gallery rather than just recycle Batman and Titans villains. And to be fair, a lot of them do exactly what they're intended to do: be entertaining one-off threats. Though making Blockbuster his Kingpin was kind of weird. Still, its a shame these guys don't recycled more for street level fights. And I don't know, there's something gloriously stupid awesome about Stallion, former football player turned karate cowboy mercenary villain.
In fairness, Batman does have some spectacularly stupid "villains" to deal with. My personal favourite of the lot is Kite-Man, because he's a joke and he knows it but he keeps trying because he can't do anything else. Also, spectacularly tragic character with the newest backstory. Like really, really sad stuff there.
What I love about Kite-Man is that he's an evil Charlie Brown. I'm not even joking. His real name is Charles "Chuck" Brown, he has incredibly bad luck, he flies kites, and he wears a helmet that makes his head look like a round sphere.
Grant you I never did much research on Kite-Man....yet. But I had no idea about this. It is so obvious once someone points it out.

In any continuity I have anything to say about he's definitely a grown up Charlie Brown.

While I'd play it that way, it would only be if all of the other Peanuts kids were evil too. Like , the Earth 1 Peanuts Gang is the Earth 3 versions of the actual Peanuts kids, who are off on some other Earth. That last Peanuts film really got to me. But I've always had a soft spot for Charlie Brown .

It was in Hawkman, vol. 2, #4, in 1986, when it was established that Kite-Man was Chuck Brown. It was after the Crisis, and I would guess that it was clear that the Batman editors had no intention of using Kite-Man anymore.

And at the end of the fight, Chuck and his kite were stuck in a tree.
What kind of crap glass was used in the windows of Wayne Manor (post-Crisis) that an animal with a mass of less than 27 grams (i.e. weighs less than an ounce) could break through it?

Design Notes
This is Solomon Grundy from the Legion of Doom. Offensively he is PL 9.5 unarmed. Defensively he is PL 9 due to Toughness and Parry. Grundy's origin is not clearly defined in the Superfriend's universe. Just a man who died a long time ago and his body was disposed of in Slaughter Swamp and was somehow revived.

When I was a kid watching The Superfriends I didn't know anything about Solomon Grundy. For some reason I thought he was an evil oil tycoon who got powers. It must have been the accent. That being said I still loved him for some reason. I always wanted to see Grundy smash and go on a rampage but sadly we never got that on the Superfriends' show. I know his power level might seem low but he never did anything that impressive besides throwing a huge boulder and grabbing Superman who had a concerned look on his face but not for long. He is definitely smarter than your typical Solomon Grundy but thankfully he still talks in third person.
