First appeared in ''"Adventure Comics''" #69 (December, 1941), created by Mort Weisinger and Paul Norris. Assumed the Sandman mantle in ''"Justice Society of America'" vol. 3 #1 (February, 2007). The original "Sandy the Golden Boy", nephew of Wesley Dodds. Grew up into the first chairman of the modern incarnation of the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, leading the team through many adventures. He gained super-powers and, after Wesley's death, inherited his prophetic dreams, but eventually got written out as the writer-switch between David Goyer & GeoffJohns went underway, disappearing into the Earth for a while, and losing his leadership position to Mr. Terrific. Eventually changed his name to the Sandman like his mentor.

* TalkativeLoon: She's prone to incoherent rambling. Although it's downright straightforward by TalkativeLoon standards, i.e. she never dissolves into complete word salad.

* PetTheDog: He can, every now and then, be kind. For instance, he both removes John Constantine's nightmares and gives Constantine's ex an easy, peaceful death when he could very easily have let her die painfully (though, admittedly, he only did this last after Constantine called him out).

The Endless is a rather dysfunctional family of seven siblings who are each {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of seven concepts. They are the children of Night and Time, and are implied to ''be'' the concepts they represent. In order of oldest to youngest, they are known as Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium. Each of the Endless has a realm in which they are completely omnipotent, and they can even shape the realm that is opposite to theirs. They are generally uncomfortable in each other's realms and only travel to each other's realms when it is completely necessary.

Destiny is the only one of the Endless not created by Creator/NeilGaiman (he was a horror anthology host from the '70s), and as such is the only one of them free to appear in Franchise/TheDCU without his permission.

* PaintingTheMedium: Destruction's speech bubbles have an extra-thick border. Aside from that, though, they look no different from the human characters' speech bubbles, highlighting the fact that he, along with Death, is the most human of the Endless.
