Originally created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo for 1983’s The Brave and the Bold #200, the Outsiders are a superhero team founded by Batman as an alternative to the more mainstream Justice League. The original lineup featured Black Lightning, Metamorpho, Geo-Force, Katana, Halo, and Looker, but the team has undergone many transformations over the years and featured in numerous volumes of their own book.
