Frankly...beyond Superman and Batman, DC doesn't have much—at least that anyone has heard of and/or cares about. Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern do at least have some following, but they haven't aged well and I'm not sure they can translate to film nearly as well as, say, Iron Man.

IMHO, they'd be better off finding some more offbeat superheroes from their back catalog (a la Guardians of the Galaxy) or biting the bullet and inventing some new ones.

Still, Marvel has done an amazing job of refurbishing characters like Captain America and Thor, so maybe DC can do the same.

I mistakenly thought the API was public; it would be nice if certain clueless news sites (and the author of TFS) would point out this is a reverse-engineered interface.

It might as well be public, though, considering how long ago it was discovered and how many apps/services/libraries are using it. Snapchat is supposed to be in the business of privacy; if they won't give full effort to protecting their users they deserve this fiasco.

Ars Technica identifies the culprit as SnapSaved, which...secretly saved [users'] images on a SnapSaved server
