Grifter (Cole Cash) is a fictional comic book superhero who has appeared in books published by Wildstorm Productions and DC Comics. Created by artist Jim Lee and writer Brandon Choi, he first appeared in WildC.A.T.s #1 (August 1992), as a member of that titular superhero team, during the period when Wildstorm and its properties were owned by Jim Lee. In that incarnation, Grifter is a former government operative and member of the military unit Team 7 and the espionage agency International Operations.
In 1999, Lee sold Wildstorm to DC Comics, and ownership of all
Wildstorm characters, including Grifter, transferred to DC Comics. His
backstory and continuity remained the same, however, until DC's 2011
relaunch of their entire comics line, The New 52,
which rebooted the continuity for most of its characters. Since then,
the character has starred in his own DC series, and has also made
appearances in numerous other DC titles, such as Voodoo, Legion Lost, Team 7, Animal Man and Deathstroke.
The character was also a cast member in the 1994 - 95 animated TV series Wild C.A.T.s, in which he was voiced by Colin O'Meara.
