"A Dream of Flying" from Black Condor #1 (DC, 1992) by Brian Augustyn and Rags Morales
Today, Palmiotti and Gray are reinventing the Quality heroes we collectively know as the Freedom Fighters (for the second time in the last decade), but the early 90s did much the same, I suppose based on the success of the original Ray mini-series and subsequent series. Re-invented or really, as was popular at the time, given a legacy character to follow in their footsteps. The Human Bomb had Damage, and there was even a new Firebrand about for an exceedingly short time. Another of these was a Black Condor who had a tenuous relationship with the original character from the Golden Age. Ryan Kendall had powers thanks to genetic manipulation conducted by his grandfather, and he struggled to find his place as a hero rather than a freak through the 12 issues of his series, with the help of his spirit guide, the ghost of the original Condor. Weird stuff.

He was summarily killed off in Infinite Crisis like so many other "unwanteds". His corpse was stolen by a villain in an issue of Nightwing, a villain who "wore" his arms and wings. And he was of course raised from the dead as a zombie Black Lantern. (Which makes me wonder if Johns didn't write Infinite Crisis with Blackest Night in mind, but of course, that would be ridiculous.) There would of course be yet another Black Condor, the Mayan-descended John Trujillo, and he's likely to become someone else AGAIN in the New52 (though like Doll Man and Phantom Lady, he might carry his original name, i.e. Richard Grey Jr.
