Warning: This episode deals with the Preacher comic. It discusses a fictional representation of religious concepts that some people may not like.

 

The Saint Of Killers from Preacher kills people (it's in his name), absolutely anyone that gets in his way gets supernatural lead in their gut. Well, one person got away.

Ted Kord was the second Blue Beetle, the only Blue Beetle without super powers. He began his comic book existence then moved to DC during the Crisis on Infinite Earths. He is close to my heart for his "Blue and Gold" adventures as well as for being the inspiration for Watchmen's Nit-Owl.
