Vigilante is the name of two separate legacies in the DC Universe. The original was Greg Sanders, a gun-slinging hero in the Old West who fought outlaws alongside his side-kick Stuff, the Chinatown Kid. He was a member of the All-Star Squadron and the Seven Soldiers of Victory. Greg Saunders was created by Mort Weisinger and Mort Meskin, first appearing in Action Comics #42. (1941)

The name was also used by Adrian Chase, a lawyer turned deadly anti-hero when he began taking the law into his own hands. Having lost faith in the system that allowed his family's killers to go free, Chase inspired a legacy of ruthless executioners to take up the costume following his death. He was a member of Checkmate, and an associate of the Teen Titans. Adrian Chase was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, first appearing as Vigilante in New Teen Titans Annual #2. (1983)
