** One of the offensive or creepy heroes mentioned by Manteau but not shown, Golliwog, is almost certainly a shot at Creator/AlanMoore for his use of a Golliwog character in some later parts of ''LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', and his somewhat dubious claims to be "reclaiming" what was good about the character from racists.

In May 2012 a new version of ''Dial H For Hero'', titled simply ''Dial H'', and written by ChinaMieville, was introduced as one of the second wave of {{New 52}} titles, rebooting the canon. It introduced a new dial, this one identical to an actual rotary phone dial, and two new wielders. The first was Nelson Jent, who had lost his job, let himself go to seed, and was on the path to self-destruction, and the second was Roxie "Manteau" Hodder, an occultly trained electrical engineer who acted as his mentor. It was cancelled the following year, after sixteen issues. A postscript issue, titled ''Dial E'', followed as part of DC's "Villains Month" event.

** In Chris and Vicky's team-up with Superman (''ComicBook/DCComicsPresents'' #44), the dials were implied to be magical as their powers affected (PreCrisis) Superman.

Question: What series features a boy finding a device that allows him to change into random superpowered forms, and deciding to use it to become a superhero?

During the DarkAge of comics, the "Dial H" characters suffered a lot. Chris and Vicky lost control of their powers and Vicky joined a cult that abused her (which storyline was written by Wolfman himself over in ''Teen Titans''). Vicky's dial later showed up in the 1990s series ''ComicBook/{{Superboy}} and the Ravers'', where it was claimed by the [[AffirmativeActionLegacy gay]] [[TwoferTokenMinority Latino]] character Hero Cruz. At around the same time (in real world terms; a thousand years in the future in-story) a Hero-Dial of unknown origin was given to Lori Morning, the Threeboot ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}' TagalongKid, by the Time Trapper.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: The serial killer in ''H-E-R-O'' used one of these through his [[SuperpowerLottery power to use any superpower he could think of]]. When police come across one of his victims, their first question is "How could somebody do this?" Not morally, but ''physically'', how is it possible to cut someone so evenly and neatly?

Answer? Telekinesis used as an impossibly thin plane of force.
