DC wants you to forget about these 10 fellows

Despite the popularity of some sidekicks, DC has gradually fazed out a number of these mini-heroes over the decades. One of the reasons for this is due to DC wanting to simplify their continuity. However, in some cases, it was because they were ashamed of the characters they created.

DC used to develop a slew of characters to go along with its main characters. The objective of these characters, whether marketed as sidekicks or employed as comedic relief, was to balance out the more serious tone of their hero’s escapades. Almost every storey with a sidekick centred on the hero needing to save the sidekick. However, there are occasions when the sidekicks assist their hero in little ways, but ultimately stand aside while their hero completes the task.

Woozy Winks was Plastic Man’s sidekick back in the early ’40s. And if Plastic Man doesn’t seem ridiculous enough on his own, Woozy makes it that much worse. In the vein of Doiby Dickles, Woozy is an overweight guy who’s mostly intended for comic relief.

Originally, the character had a spell cast on him that protected him from danger. However, as that didn’t give Plastic Man many opportunities to save him, the spell eventually wore off. His main purpose seems to be telling Plastic Man who is and isn’t worth arresting. These days, Woozy makes more appearances in cartoons than comics, where he hasn’t been seen in years. And even Plastic Man isn’t featured very often.

Introduced in the late 2000s, this version of Terra came from a society that lived underground. First introduced in Supergirl, the character ended up becoming the sidekick of Power Girl in the late 2000s and early 2010s. She worked alongside Power Girl as a sidekick while learning how to live among humans. Although the character was likable, DC had no place for her during the New 52. As a result, the character vanished while Power Girl teamed up with Huntress to complete a quest that returned them to their homeworld, which also ended up being retconned to create a “simpler” DC Universe.

Lorena Marquez was introduced at a time DC didn’t quite know what to do with Aquaman. She made her first appearance in 2004, where an earthquake sank a large part of San Diego into the ocean. As a result, many of the citizens adapted to living underwater, including Lorena, who became Aquagirl after Ocean Master briefly swapped lives with Aquaman.
