10) Detective Comics #485 (September, 1979)
Only an okay cover, but this was the story that established Ben Turner in the DC firmament as a premier combatant when he beat Batman in combat (twice-ish!).
9) Suicide Squad #18 (October, 1988)
Nothing special here-- just a quality action cover with Ben standing on his own
8) Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #1 (May, 1975)
The first comic book appearance of Benjamin Stanley, the character from a low rent novel that would morph into Ben Taylor during this adaptation/continuation.
7) Suicide Squad #15 (July, 1988)
You want hard? Be the upfront man mobbed by demons armed only with martial arts skills.
6) Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter #18 (December, 1976)
The cover debut of the Bronze Tiger brings down the curtain on the Kung Fu Fighter series. Why's he always gotta be creepin'?
5) Suicide Squad #24 (February, 1989)
Looking confident under the gun and on point with the team he's most associated with. Plus, Vixen? Prrrr!
4) Justice League Task Force #5 (October, 1993)
It's a group shot, but better company than average, and clearly shows Bronze Tiger as a high caliber karate badass. Plus, Gypsy? Hit that criminally.
3) Suicide Squad #38 (February, 1990)
You rarely see a hero so compromised and stressed on a cover, but it bums me out.
2) Suicide Squad #65 (May, 1992)
A solid cover with Ben rocking the much favored goatee, and expressing his inner turmoil from the brainwashed assassin days.
1) Checkmate #7 (December, 2006)
I'm not a big fan of the cathead mask, but this is a strong image that conveys the espionage martial artist angle of the character.
