Great and PowerfulHaven't read it, sorry. Not usually—but then she doesn't have to given her power set.
As far as Cyborg (Victor Stone)'s family goes, I'm not sure where it stands post "The New 52, " but as written by Marv Wolfman, his creator, his father was a brilliant scientist with whom he didn't get along terribly well (a sticking point in their relationship was that, while possessing a genius-level IQ, Vic was also a gifted athlete, and chose to pursue athletics instead of science — some vague overtures were made as well along the lines that Vic may have thought his father was trying to be "too white;" his grandparents even came right out and said as much at one point). His mother was already dead, and his father died saving his life in the accident that made him Cyborg. His grandparents were ex-vaudeville performers (they called Vic "Corky, " much to his chagrin), and showed up quite frequently during Wolfman's mid-early run on The New Teen Titans.
Aggressively ApatheticSo, I've just finished Thor: The Mighty Avenger. It was... a truly beautiful story. I was very sad to see the series ended.
Pray tell, what school of trangression is this?

The Merry TitanI haven't read much of Luke Cage or Iron Fist, and I love the Essential line, so I was wondering if picking up volume 1 of Essential Power Man & Iron Fist would be a good idea. Anyone know?
Great and PowerfulIt's certainly got its good points—the two characters bounce off each other well, and this was back when Marvel really made an effort on the continuity front.

Okay, so I'm trying to look up this character named Shi. Which doesn't bring up anything useful in the search function. Anyone here know what comic she's from. It would be an American one, she's some sort of ninja that wears this weird padded bolero like thing and not much else.
Great and PowerfulNever read any of it, but she (Shi) primarily appeared in comic books named after herself. I think she was published by Image Comics. eta: Correction, it was Crusade Comics—here's The Other Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shi_%28comics%29

Re: Shi - She appeared in her own self-named comic, largely back in the '90's. She was created by Billy Tucci.
So I'm writing this fanfiction with my own take on [[Batman and The Outsiders]] that I've been working on for 2 years now. In order to tie in to the larger DCU, I've decided to have some of the JSA character's like Wild Cat and Jay Garrick act as supporting characters. They are retired and old in this world though alongside the hero Nightshade (Eve Eden). Anyway, to take this idea further I have thought to make one of the police officers in the series a meta human. Basically he uses his powers to aide him in police work. I also want him to be a descendant or related to one of the older JSA members. I also want him to be an adult so younger characters like Star Girl and Cyclone are off the table and I want him to be born with powers so characters like Jack Knight is off the table aswell. So which young JSA character fit the bill best?
Great and PowerfulJade and Obsidian, the kids of Alan Green Lantern Scott, Nuklon, godson of the Atom, Fury, daughter of Wonder Woman come to mind. Presuming you mean pre-Crisis; some background shifted post-Crisis.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've looked them up and after clikcing through the links I've decided that Sandy Hawkins better fits what I'm going for here.
I started reading Fables recently, just finished volume 5. Is Jack Of Fables something I can just pick up any time, or do they closely tie in with each other?
Everything is perfect / it's falling into place / I just can't wipe this smile off my face
So can anyone link me to or list notable law enforcement characters in comics that are not from the GCPD or from Metropolis?
Savage Dragon, and possible Witchblade. Though they are from Image and Top Cow comics, respectfully.
Theres the guys from Powers and Top 10 and a few comics based on similar premises to one of those. As for Marvel and DC; how prominent is prominent? Marvel has Captain Stacy, Captain De Wolfe, Agent Duncan and Charlette Jones who were all fairly important.
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous- Almost, at times, the fool.
Sorry, I should have clarified. I meant cop characters from within the DCU and not from the GCPD or Metropolis.
Sorry I don't know if this goes here. Well it seams that marvel dos have some Rubbergirls. Three of them but None are very well known. Spanner she do not have a real name, or personality to my knowledge. Serpentina, Kim Potters, who scares me a little but I don't know way. Rubbermaid who unfortunately has been de-powered and is dead right now. I don't know much about any of them but they seem inserting.
sorry if this is not the place to post. Some random Green Lantern related questions.
Great and Powerful1. Yes, under extreme circumstances. 2. Because of the "extreme circumstances" thing, there's never been a need for an oath for someone using two rings of different colors at the same time—it never lasts long enough for a recharge to be an issue. 3. Knowing Pinkie Pie, she'd just make something silly up on the spot.
Of some interest, one of the memebers of Batman's original Outsiders was a girl named Halo, who had a variety of powers associated with the aura's of light she could generate around herself (all the ROYGBIV colors of the visible spectrum — even indigo, which really shouldn't count). In his pre-New 52 Superman and the Legion of Superheroes story, Geoff Johns had a character with Halo's exact powers in the Legion of Substitute Heroes; she was a sub because she had to be feeling the emotion attached to it's attendant color in the same emotional-color-power spectrum thingy that Johns came up with for his various Lantern Corps. Given that white and black aren't really colors in the same sense that other colors are, I wonder that they should work...or perhaps I'm reading too much into things...
