The Musketeer was the Batman of France, a member of the Batmen of All Nations.

Not much is known about the Musketeer, except that he was inspired by Batman and the stories of the Justice Society to take a costumed identity as the hero of Paris. He was involved in the Club of Heroes for its brief existence.

Years later, when Doctor Mist set up the Global Guardians, the Musketeer was among the founding members. However, he vanished under mysterious circumstances and was not seen again for years.

Years later, the truth was revealed: the Musketeer was involved in an incident with one of his enemies, when he accidentally stabbed the other man and was convicted of manslaughter. He was sent to prison with his rogues gallery for an extended period, an experience he did not enjoy; however, he has since written a book about the experience, which has been optioned as a movie.

Musketeer joined the Club of Heroes once more and traveled to Gotham City to aid Batman on his battle against the new organization called the Black Glove.[1]


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • Prior to Infinite Crisis, the Musketeer's origin mentioned that he had been a member of the French Resistance during WWII and was a hero during the 50s.
