    Was featured in the Doom Patrol after it moved to the Vertigo imprint for more mature comics that were not necessarily in mainstream continuity.  So, it's a matter of interpretation as to whether to count the transsexual prostitute who gained powers from servicing a radioactive hermaphrodite as a mainstream character.  Coagula was created by trans-woman author Rachel Pollack.

    While still in regular mainstream DC continuity, the Doom Patrol did feature a male transvestite character named Danny the Street.  Of course, Danny was a sentient street.
