BTS - He was among a group of paranormals (who received power either from the White Event or the Pitt/Black Event) that decided to become costumed super-heroes. Each of them took a part of New York. There was at least Captain Manhattan and Captain Brooklyn.



(Justice#31) - Chauncy, Playback, Shudderbug, agents of the National Security Council, were captured by the Forsaken in the Terminus of Coney Island. Captain Brooklyn arrived to save them, flattening Horny Toad in the process.

(Justice#32) - Brooklyn confronted the Forsaken, easily overpowering the lesser group, but Judge Mental then ordered Seraph to get rid of him. Expecting a fair fight, Brooklyn was unprepared when Seraph pulled his cape over his had and skewered him with his scythe. Unable to believe his steel-hard skin had been so easily penetrated, Brooklyn did not respond in time to stop Seraph from sticking one of Dog O'War's grenades down his throat. His steel hard skin withstood the explosion, but his insides were pulped.
    Angie Tensen later briefly communicated with Brooklyn's corpse, learning what she and Justice could expect within the Terminus.



Comments: Created by Peter David and Lee Weeks.

Captain Manhattan appeared mostly simultaneously with Captain Brooklyn, appearing in DP7#30 and 31. I think Manhattan mentioned working with other heroes in New York. I can't remember whether anything was specified, but I'm at most extrapolating on the fact that they used two of the boroughs, that there might have been ones in the other three boroughs of New York. I feel bad for the schlep that got stuck with Captain Queens, though.

My Zip disk crashed AND my hard drive wiped this in the process of trying to save a back-up, thus I had to retype it. Good thing it's not too long. I love technology!
