* The "Trial of {{Superman}}" arc had a character named Freelance, a bounty hunter who traveled space in a 18th century-style pirate ship, complete with holographic figurehead changeable to whatever female he happens to be attracted to. He enjoys letting enemies onto his ship simply to throw them off, fighting with a sword, and sports an eyepatch.

And if that concept isn't 18th century enough, then Somali pirates attack South Harbour... by firing audible cannon broadsides.
