Eve Teschmacher first appeared in Superman: The Movie (1978) as Lex Luthor's attractive assistant. She hasn't appeared in comics much because that role is filled by the much more capable Mercy Graves - also a canon immigrant - but she has been seen here and there. The first such appearance was in JLA: Earth 2 (2000).

Jay and Raven are part of a trio of molls that work for the Penguin; they first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode "The Ultimate Thrill" (1997). They made a few sporadic appearances but were never major characters. They later appeared, along with their partner Lark, as working for the Penguin in Detective Comics #5 (March 2012), also in a non-major role. Although Lark also appeared in the animated series, her first appearance was in a 1990 comic.

Protector (real name: Jason Hart) first appeared in "New Teen Titans Drug Abuse Awareness" #1, a 1983 PSA comic sponsored by Keebler. Protector was a stand-in for Robin, who was licensed by Nabisco at the time. He became a real deal member of the Titans in Team Titans #24 (September 1994), which happened to be the last issue of the series, so he never appeared again. He's made some cameos here and there, such as in the Infinite Crisis hardcover (2006), but never had much of an impact.

DC's "New 52" initiative promised a ton of new stuff, but it seems like the only things that have had any real change is the characters' costumes. With that in mind, Bane's clothing also changed, and it changed to the paramilitary look of the character in The Dark Knight Rises (2012). You know..."new". At least they didn't change the mask. He made his New 52 debut in Batman #23.4 (October 2013).
