Have you ever read any of the Kite-Man appearances or just the reinvention of the character as a joke villain created by The Riddler to make The Joker laugh? I have read his first appearance, his second year later by Len Wein and his Gotham Knights appearance. Also, Kite-Man was killed off TWICE in a matter of months around the time of Infinite Crisis. Brown turned down Deathstroke's invitation so he sent him off the ledge of a building without his glider and then Bruno Maannheim cannibalized him in the 52 weekly series. Someone really hated the guy in 2006! Here are his appearances.

Batman #133 (August 1960): "Crimes of the Kite-Man"
Batman #315 (September 1979): "Danger on the Wing"
Hawkman Vol. 2 #4 (November 1986): "For the Benefit of Mister Kite"
Justice League America #43 (October 1990): "If You Play Your Card Right..."
Young Justice #23 (September 2000): "Down Under Where"
Batman: Gotham Knights #33 (November 2002): "Tabula Rasa, Prologue: The Devil You Know..."

Young Justice #50 (December 2002): "Fighting Maad Part Four: M.U.B.A.R."
