Captain Stingaree's History

Born one of a set of quadruplets, Karl Courtney was always the black sheep of the family. Donning a cutlass and pirate outfit, Karl became Captain Stingaree. In his first outing, Captain Stingaree attempted to uncover Batman's secret identity. Somehow Stingaree had become convinced that his three brothers were actually Batman. Batman approached the Courtney brothers to pose as Batman and act as bait for Stingaree. This allowed the real Batman and the Flash to capture Captain Stingaree.Captain Stingaree later joined Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang in a splinter group of the Secret Society of Super-Villains. The three captains kidnapped other captains to show supremacy over air, land and sea, before they were taken down by Captain Comet and Black Canary.Captain Stingaree was later revealed to be gay, and in a relationship with The Cavalier. This secret was used as leverage by Black Lightning to blackmail Stingaree into working as an informant for the JLA.

Captain Stingaree was killed by Jeannette in Gotham City during a confrontation with the Secret Six. She snapped his neck, and twisted his head around backwards
