LNH/META: Trinity

A bit of random rambling, resulting from wiki-edits...

The trio of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, by virtue of surviving the
Interregnum between the Golden Age and Silver Age, have long been thought
of as a threesome that's the next level above the A-list, the central
characters, in a way, of the DCU.  Lately, Marvel has been pushing the idea
that Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America form a similar group.

Now, the LNH doesn't work the same way as the above companies; which
characters are in the spotlight has a lot less to do with trademark
retention and reader numbers and a lot more to do with which writers are
active and what they feel like writing about.  Nevertheless, I've noticed
that, in my mind, there's a threesome of series which have become
emblematic of the LNH in my mind: Limp-Asparagus Lad, The Adventures of
Easily-Discovered Man, and Writer's Block Woman (and Mouse).  These three
(well, five if you count EDMLite and Mouse, which you should) (well, eight
if you count Retcon Lad, Fourth Wall Lass, and Kid Not Appearing In Any
Retcon Hour Story) (anyway) represent LNH characters in my mind.

How about you?  Who, in your mind, represents LNH characters?

(You could probably do this exercise with other RACC universes, but many of
them focus so specifically on a few characters that it's obvious, and other
are so spread-out that it doesn't matter.)

(Also: Is Captain Cleanup retired?  I thought he had in some story and left
Squeaky Clean in his place, but I was looking it up for the wiki and
couldn't find anything.)

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, confused.
