The New 52 Welcomes Bronze Tiger

by Russ Burlingame

Bronze TigerThe latest in DC Comics's series of "What's New in the New 52" blog posts is Bronze Tiger--which is interesting because up until now most of the characters have been villains (or at least morally ambiguous/sometime villains like The Joker's Daughter).

Bronze Tiger, previously depicted as an African-American superhero with a tiger motif costume, now appears as an actual tiger-man. Here's the description from DC's blog:

There’s been a whole lot of talk lately about Jason Todd’s memories. It seems like there are layers and layers of the character that have yet to be revealed -- like what’s his connection to a gang of mercenaries who are led by someone part human and part … wild cat? Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to Bronze Tiger.
So it appears as though Bronze Tiger is, at a minimum, an antihero and that he'll have a connection to Red Hood and the Outlaws. Could we see him join the team? We'll likely find out soon enough...
