187: Animal Man

Buddy baker was a punk rocker, a stunt man and an avatar for the red. What more could you ask of a superhero? Spending time with the Forgotten Heroes and Justice League Europe, he is probably best know for his militant animal rights activism. He is also one of those rare characters that has met his writer, Grant Morrison.
