Episode 7 - Ragman - Part 1

Episode 7: 1991 mini and Arrow episodes (maybe Suit of Souls) Episode 8: Batman two-parter, Shadowpact #8 Henry - Excerpted from p. 124, From Krakow to Krypton: Jews and Comic Books by Arie Kaplan “Rory Regan, a character [Robert] Kanigher and [Joe] Kubert created in 1976. A Batman-style vigilante who operated out of Gotham City and wore a dilapidated costume made of the rags from the junk shop he shared with his dad, Ragman first appeared in five issues of his own short-lived series in 1976-1977. Appropriately enough for a character dressed in rags, Ragman fought crime in the ghetto, and his targets were often average gangsters and hoods rather than supervillains. This gave Ragman the air of a social crusader, not unlike Siegel’s and Shuster’s early Superman stories.” Originally Irish - Rory Regan 1991 series, he was reimagined as a Jewish character Brandon 16th Century Edict limiting Jews to work ragpicking That same section in From Krakow to Krypton weirdly claims The decision to make the character Jewish was a mutual one. “We created him with a Jewish heritage, although we didn’t make a big to-do about it,” said Kubert.
