OOoooooOOOO, that is an idea. There have been some other request for some british characters. Aoste gave me some ideas on some for Live Draw Nite, that are perfect for DSC treatments too. I'll get some up into our rotation.
Thanks for all the cool suggestions. We'll definitely continue to pull from this thread and get those out there to draw!

He broke out several other criminals to become members of his army of crime, and would clash with both the police and with other criminal masterminds.

I'm really enjoying the many suggestions that you all are posting. This is actually very educational for me, as I learn about new characters from all over. Keep 'em coming!
Also, don't worry about suggesting a character more than once, or if you have a specific version of a character in mind either. It is all good!
