Batman and the Outsiders

 BATO   (DC, 1983-1986)

™ and © 1983 DC Comics

The Outsiders united against evil even though, individually, they were puzzling out who they were and how to use their powers. It took Batman to bring them together as a team; and as a team, they’re quite formidable indeed. Three of the Outsiders: Halo, Black Lightning, and Geo-Force can throw powerful blasts against enemies; Katana is a master swordswoman; and Metamorpho can transform himself, or parts of himself, into anything, including gas. Batman, of course, needs no introduction.

With issue #33, Batman went his own way, and this title changed its name to The Adventures of the Outsiders.
