Javelin (DC)
Real Name:
Search for 'Javelin (DC)' on Amazon

Gimmick projectiles

The Javelin’s true identity has never been revealed but it is known that he is a German former Olympic athlete who turned to a life of crime, using his uncanny abilities with a javelin-based weapons arsenal. Javelin and his henchmen were already well-established criminals-for-hire when the Monitor hooked them up with Congressman Jason Bloch. The Javelin succeeded in stealing Ferris Aircraft's new solar jet and defeating Green Lantern Hal Jordan with his gimmicked projectiles but overplayed his hand when he tried to use a javelin-rocket to destroy Ferris. Captured by Green Lantern, the villain later resurfaced and allegedly fought Skyrocket. He later agreed to serve with the Suicide Squad in exchange for the purging of his criminal record. His last Squad mission was a battle with Circe during the so-called War of the Gods. The sorceress impaled Javelin with one of his own weapons, after which he was believed to be dead. However, he later appeared in San Fransisco, working for Doctor Cyber and was once again defeated by his old enemy Skyrocket.
