The original Dr. Mid-Nite is said to have died in the mid 1990s. For the last couple of decades, he occasionally acted as a mentor for the Justice League and was active in Justice Society politics. In 1983, a young black woman calling herself Dr. Midnight with the blessing of the original worked with Infinity Inc. and then the Justice League. She has not been seen for several years. In Providence, Rhode Island, there is a new Dr. Mid-Nite who uses many of the same motifs as the original and claims to be emulating his namesake.
