If only DC had held onto the "Red Circle" licence, they could have had this guy featured in his own Villains Month issue:
So what is Needlenoodle's game, anyway?
But we're not done yet!! The second Black Hood story in the issue features the return of Needlenoodle!
Anyway, Needlenoodle wants to hire Burland as a bodyguard, in what is an overly complicated plot to frame him for murder. Which, of course, ends up in a fight atop a train:
Kids, never fight atop moving trains (unless you're James Bond).
And those are the only appearances ever for Needlenoodle.
But just think what DC could do with him in a Villains Month special--he's an orphan!! After his parent(s) abused him terribly!! And kids teased him mercilessly!! And it's not his fault he became evil!! Just feel sympathy for him, dammit!!
Oh, wait--that's all of the other Villains Month issues...
