Best Acronym EVER

D. dedicated
E. enemies of
A. and
T.Traitors to
H. Humanity

Charlton's Fightin' 5 was a series that began during the 60s in the middle of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. spy craze that gave rise to a number of other great comic book acronyms. D.E.A.T.H. though, clearly tops the list. It would seem  from the letter on Lady Dawn's chest, and the "E" on the chest of her dedicatedly traitorous compatriot, that each member of D.E.A.T.H. has a name that begins with one of the group's eponymous initials, which only makes these self-described enemies of humanity all the more awesome. This reminds me of something between Superman's "S" and the "L" that Laverne used to wear on all her sweaters on Laverne and ShirleyStill, despite their cuteness, you've got to love bad guys who love to be bad guys so much that they're willing to piss off everybody.
