Douglas Hutton, aka, the British Bat, was a small-time super-villain. During a battle with Starman, he broke the hero's leg.[1] The British Bat later encountered the Justice Society of America. The JSA easily defeated him, along with some assistance from the Star-Spangled Kid and her "sidekick" S.T.R.I.P.E..[2]

Starman's broken leg was referenced in All-Star Comics #58 but the British Bat was not revealed to be the responsible party until Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #9.
