List RulesVote up your favorite DC characters who, at one point or another, were part of the Outsiders.

While basically everybody is familiar with which heroes were members of the Justice League, not being quite as familiar with who was part of Outsiders is basically the whole point. Batman originally founded Outsiders because of difficulties working within the "mainstream" of Justice League.

As such, the best Outsiders members tend to be rogues who like to do things their own way. They formed because Justice League explicitly told them not to go into the war-ravaged (and fake) country of Markovia. These are the badasses who tell Superman, "Nah." These DC comics members include titans like Batman, Black Lightning, Martian Manhunter, and even Green Arrow. Basically, anyone who's cool in the comics and wants to seek some sweet vigilante justice without having to deal with all the rules and regulations that other superhero groups have to adhere to.

But there have been several Outsiders members over the years, so we made a list of the best past and present Outsiders members, and it's up to you to vote up the best and vote down the worst.
