“I don't get it. Why didn't they agree with my idea to name him 'The Meatgobbler'?"”
The Beefeater (Michael Morice) is yet another excuse by those anti-British bastards at DC Comics to insult the British just because the British Empire was bigger, better and lasted longer than the American Empire in practically every way.
AKA The Beef beater of london
Because DC Comics are too stubborn to give British characters more than one appearance, The Beefeater was only in Justice League #20, and even then, it was just 20-pages of absolute Brit-bashing with explosions looking like the Union Jack, Fawlty Towers as the setting and Doctor What being the only thing on television.
The Actual Plot and not the Rantings of an Anglophile
The Beefeater is the holder of the mighty Rod of Stewart, and the greedy American bastards Batman and Superman wanted to do anything to get their hands on it. Inviting him to join the JLA, they make the Rod of Stewart go awry as it is sensitive to American trigger-happiness, and destroys the Eiffel Tower as a result.
They blame Beefeater, as all Americans do in a crisis, and walk off, but not before The Beefeater burns them to a crisp to show them what dirty little fuckers they are.
Unlike Shining Knight, the only thing worth talking about here is that DC Comics finally did a British superhero for their collection, if only to make attacks on Great Britain that led to National Front pounding at their door the next day after the issue was released. Because of this, the character has never been used again because the British had laid waste to the offices of DC Comics and threatened to do even worse if something like that shit was ever printed again.
