Ditko's Hawk and Dove and Beware the Creeper series.
Gerry Conway and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez's Cinder and Ashe mini-series.
Michael Fleischer and Jim Aparo's run on the Spectre.
Bob Rozakis and Curt Swan's "The Private Life of Bruce (Superman) Wayne" back-up series in which baby Kal-El is found by patrolman Jim Gordon and brought to the doorstep of Wayne Manor.
I have long thought that the Creature Commandos and G.I. Robot (along with the War That Time Forgot) had marketing potential far beyond DC's use of them. Giving them more exposure in series of their own could only help with that.*
* Picture an entirely different approach to the DC Cinematic Universe in which concepts like the War That Time Forgot, G.I. Robot, the Challengers of the Unknown, the Sea Devils, Paul Kirk's Manhunter, et al, are given strong, stand-alone films that only subtly interact with one another. As more films are introduced, the connections become more obvious, but it is never stressed to the point where the title characters are not front and center starring in their own story.
Since DC has explicitly drawn a line between its television properties and film projects, putting multiple versions of various characters on the big and small screen at the same time, the Doom Patrol could get in on this as well. And hey, Kenneth Branagh keeps trying to get in on one of these tentpole concept universes... I say we call him up and offer him the Chief.
