I think they killed this character again recently, but now you can read his origin story online.  Reading this, he seems better even than Batman.

To paraphrase Stephen Colbert, "Mr. Terrific: great superhero, or the greatest superhero?"

You can't help liking a character who becomes a superhero out of ennui. Why didn't he go into politics?
