Search for 'Doctor Mid-Nite (DC)(01 - Charles McNider)' on Amazon


Powers:
He can see in total darkness.

Weaknesses:
He is blind in the presence of light.

Bio:
One night, he was called to remove a bullet from a witness who was to testify against the mob. However, a mobster threw a grenade into the room, killing the witness and blinding McNider. McNider thought his days as a surgeon were over until one day, as he was recovering, an owl crashed through his window (remeniscent of the incident that inspired Batman to dress as a bat). Taking off the bandages that were covering his eyes, he found that he could see, but only in perfect darkness. Using his newfound ability, he developed a special visor that let him see in light and "blackout bombs" that block out all light, and used these to fight crime. He adopted the owl, Hooty, and appointed him as his sidekick. He later joined the Justice Society of America and the All-Star Squadron.
