BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD -- CHARACTERS

BATMAN

The quick-thinking straight man in the action-packed and often hilarious world of The Brave and the Bold, Batman is relentless in his pursuit of justice and infinitely patient in his dealings with quirky guest stars and sidekicks. This Batman isn't the brooding Dark Knight we've come to know in recent years yet is equally fast with a dry joke or a flying Batarang.

AQUAMAN

Both valiant and vainglorious, Aquaman is the barrel-chested King of Atlantis and, in his own eyes, is as heroic as they come. Fearless and loyal, Aquaman is the first to answer when duty calls, and he relishes the glory of the fight. He has the disposition of a hearty Greek God and the ego and brawn to match.

GREEN ARROW

The expert marksman is as dedicated to competition as Batman is to the preservation of justice. Green Arrow never misses a chance to one-up his DC Super Hero compatriots (though never at the expense of the mission) and gets great pleasure out of stoking the fires of his perpetual rivalry with Batman. After all, it just makes them better heroes, right?

RED TORNADO

John Ulthoon lives in a suburban neighborhood, wears his slippers and robe when picking up the morning paper, and has a respectable job as the Professor of Archeology at the local community college. He's also a robot. His suburban veneer, of course, is a cover for his hero alter ego Red Tornado. In Batman, he sees not only a partner, but also someone who can teach him more about humanity, of which he strives to both understand and be a part.

BLUE BEETLE

El Paso, Texas native Jaime Reyes thought the closest he would ever get to Batman was the posters adorning his walls, but when a mysterious alien technology turned him into the hero Blue Beetle, the fanboyıs wildest dreams became a reality. Jaime canıt help but tackle every mission with wide-eyed wonder and brings a youthful buoyancy to even the toughest fights.

PLASTIC MAN

Reformed petty thief Eel OıBrian got a second lease on life as a ductile detective working at Batmanıs side. The rubbery shape-shifter is part one-man comedy show, part malleable merchant of justice, doling out wisecracks and hard knocks with haphazard glee. And while the call of cash still rings in his ears, the little Batman on his shoulder yells much louder...
