All-Imp League:
Bat-Mite

Here's a charter member of the All-Imp League, Bat-Mite! Bat-Mite debuted in Detective Comics #367, pictured left. Unlike Mr. Mxyztplk, Superman's impish foe, Bat-Mite is NOT an imp! He comes from a dimension where everyone is his size, and he wants that made perfectly clear! Also, he tries to HELP his hero, Batman, not annoy him like those OTHER imps.

Also -- how many of the other imps had a series of their very own TV cartoon episodes? That's right, Bat-Mite co-starred in a "Batman" cartoon made by Filmation. The series premiered February 10, 1977 on CBS, and featured the voices of Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin.

Bat-Mite was voiced by Lennie Weinrib, and his costume was "designed" by a blind wombat who managed to completely ruin it, totally obscuring Bat-Mite's connection to Batman, but whatever. It was just a cartoon, and a long time ago. Still -- did they really HAVE to give him green skin, and huge pink feet?

Kid Eternity: Human info-tainment center

Kid Eternity had the power to summon anyone from history to help him fight crime and solve mysteries. Starring in Hit Comics, the Kid is seen below summoning a Sherlock Holmes-ish lookin guy, Roman Gladiators, even George Washington. He's a walking history lesson ... but so entertaining! One drawback: like the Spectre, he is dead. May scare the kids. But he's so life-like and cheerful, just don't bring it up, and they'll never notice! Pictured: Hit Comics #25, 29 and 44.
