* CListFodder: Zig-zagged, as he's surprisingly resilient given how often DC does reality-altering {{Crisis Crossover}}s. His original pre-Crisis self survived the original Crisis and ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'', but might have been killed off during a Superman storyline in the 2000s, while his Post-Crisis self survived until the TimeCrash of ''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}''. Then he was revealed to be alive for ''ComicBook/{{Convergence}}'', which ended with ''all'' DC timelines and realities restored, so at least two of him are out there somewhere.
