Every day, superhero universes grow in size and complexity, but not every superhero is a part of one or gets the recognition they deserve.

There are still plenty of crime fighters flying around who have fallen by the wayside, whether due to a lack of critical acclaim or because their creators moved on to pursue better (or worse) things.
