- Kite Man may have minions, but he works for no one.
A childhood fascination with kites led Chuck Brown to attempt to use kites as a tool for crime. His first caper involved lifting convicts out of the prison yard on a giant kite, but he eventually settled down to simple theft. He was defeated several times by the Batman, and once by Hawkman, Hawkwoman, and Zatanna. He refused to join the Society, and was thrown off a building by Deathstroke, but survived the fall without his glider. Bruno Manheim also claimed to have killed and eaten Kite Man when he refused to join Intergang, but he’s still around.
Kite Man has shown absolutely no loyalty to his minions, and is so adamant that he won’t join an organization that it’s nearly gotten him killed twice. He’s very impressed with himself.
Powers & Abilities
Kite Man has no special powers, but is an excellent hang-glider pilot and has been called “the man who can fly anything.” In addition to his jet-powered hang glider (which collapses into a backpack), he has used kites equipped with nets and flares, glider drones, and other kite-themed gadgets in his crimes.
Kite Man isn’t a fighter; his signature is a method of getting away.
