Still missing my brother...

Faceless apeared in a single two-issue story during the Doug Moench/Kelly Jones era.

The Answer is even odder: he was a *planned* villain for Alan Grant and Mark Buckingham's run on Shadow of the Bast, and got a profile page in Batman Villains Secret Files & Origins #1. But because the various crossovers took over the book, and Grant eventually left the title, the Answer never appeared in an actual comic story at all!

For the curious, the idea was that he was a conspiracy loon who believed in alien abductions and various apocalyptic theories whose family was killed in the earthquake that touched off No Man's Land. He then went extra crazy and began stealing various sources of information to "complete his theories," not caring if he killed anyone along the way because "individual life is insignificant in the face of the survival of the planet." Knowing Grant, he probably would have run into the Riddler at some point.

Something very similar happened with a villain called the Skeleton, who was introduced in his own story in a Secret Files about the post-NML Batman, but never returned again. He had a gimmick of using other villains' equipment and M.O., and seemed to know that Batman was Bruce Wayne.
