Knight Watchman
Real Name: Reid Randall
Search for 'Knight Watchman' on Amazon

Knight Watchman is based in Midway City (not to be confused with the city featured in Doom Patrol), where he fought crime for fifty years while maintaining a career as a fashion designer.

Reid Randall's crimefighting life started after receiving a telegram saying that his brother, Ted, was in the hospitial, leaving no one to run the family business, a garment factory. Back home, his mother told him that Ted had gambling debts, and the people he owed wanted to take the business. The beating Ted had received was a warning; next time the factory would be destroyed. Later that evening a hood tells Ted to sign over the business; Reid walks in and the hood runs out. Later Ted and Janet are killed by a car bomb. Reid swears to find the men responsible, make them pay, and rid the world of their kind.[1]

As time went on, he becomes more of an anti-hero the same way Batman has become. By the time Big Bang Comics had entered the modern day (the 1990's), Knight Watchman is reluctant to come out of retirement despite attempts by Ultiman to place Randall back in the cape.

Reid's nephew, Jerry Randall, becomes Knight Watchman's sidekick, Kid Galahad. As he grows up Jerry becomes a hero in his own right as Galahad (a reference to Dick Grayson's career as Robin and Nightwing.) After Reid retires, Jerry fills both roles; as the publicly known and liked Galahad during the day, and as the mysterious and feared Knight Watchman at night.

Although in comics continuity, Knight Watchman exists in Earth-A (Silver Age), Knight Watchman appeared alongside the Earth-B Golden Age heroes in the TV movie, Knights of Justice
