Being the second in a series of articles looking at the old Who's Who series' collection of entries and imagining how many entries would make up a new DC reference work before and after the Flushpoint. (Volume 1, here.)
Alternate now: In the pre-Flushpoint universe, when a new Who's Who was SUPPOSED to come out (at the same time Legacies did), there might still be a few cuts. The non-continuity characters, of course, but a crappy Outsiders villain du jour like Baron Bedlam might have been excised too, no matter what kind of role he played in the team's initial formation (minimal). The issue would have contained a lot of the characters mentioned above in the New52 section, especially the Batman-related stuff: Batman Inc., the all-new all-different Batwoman, plus at least two new Azraels and Batgirls.
Who else? Alphabetically, I might see Azarath, Aztek, Bad Penny, Bad Samaritan (if lame Outsiders villains are still in), The Banner, forgotten Quality Comics character the Barker, Baron Sunday, Baron Tyrano, Barracuda, Barter, some love for Batman Beyond, Battalion, Bedlam, Belle Reve, Bette Noire, Bialya, Bibbo, Big Science Action, Black Alice, Black Baron, Black Beetle, a couple of new Black Condors, Black Flash, Blackgate Prison and Blackguard. But you know me, I wouldn't REALLY be happy unless we also saw Batzarro, Beard Hunter, Beefeater, Archie analog Binky, and Beppo the Super-Monkey.
And of course, that's not all the "B"s. They go on for another issue. I guess we'll have to pick this back up next week. In the meantime, who did I miss? What would your dream Who's Who have between Auron (end of vol.1) and Black Lightning (start of vol.2)?
