In issue #26 of the original Who's Who they had a bit of a catch-up and looked at characters that had been missed in the earlier issues, hence the sudden change back to earlier letters.
ZATARA - presumably still dead in the New 52, while Zatanna might get the odd message or ghostly appearance from her dad, I don't expect him to be around much.
THE ZOO CREW! - as I've mentioned when covering the original members, I can't see Captain Carrot and his friends appearing anywhere soon.
ZOOT SPUTNIK - the roginal entry mentioned that "Neither Zoot Sputnik nor the 'MAZING MAN cast exist in the mainstream DC Universe." and I can't see that changing.
ANGEL AND THE APE - a sassy private detective and her ape companion. I doubt they'll be back soon.
BLACKJAK - appeared in Atari Force, so no need to know anything more.
CANNON & SABER - enemies of the Adrian Chase Vigilante, I can't see them tunrning up again.
CAPTAIN X - another World War II hero that I think we can discount.
DRAGONSWORD - while he appeared in Warlord it looks like he was unconnected to Skataris. As that land has a really slim chance of appearing anywhere in the New DCU, I guess Dragonsword has next to none.
KNODAR - hahahahaha! No, good lord, no!
MEKANIQUE - a robot too closely entwined with Infinity Inc to ever stand a chance of returning, so this one's a no as well.
NEUTRON - don't think we've seen Neutron since the whole Salvation Run thing before Final Crisis during which he died. Seems unlikely that he'll be around again.
THE 1000 - criminal organistation that went up against Booster Gold and Superman among others. Either way, it's not a separate character so I'm not counting it.
So in summary, just one in place (Guy Gardner) with no predictions or possibles.
As next week's the last Monday of 2012, I'll be doing my usual Cocktail of the Year post so call in next Tuesday and we'll do a spot of tallying up and see how we did.
