Johnny DC is a character that DC Comics has used at various times as a mascot for its lines of comic books, and occasionally as metafictional character who comments on the comics in which it appears.

The character originally appeared in various Silver Age DC Comics advertisements, and was used to promote DC's entire line of comics. He had a cartoonish face wearing a mortarboard, with stick figure lines for his arms and legs, and a body that consisted of the DC Comics logo of the time.

In the mid-1990s, Johnny DC appeared in the satirical special "Sergio Aragones Destroys DC". He's shown as having become disillusioned with the modern direction of DC's superhero comics, criticizing the various members of the Justice League and accusing them of having changed for the worse.

In 2004, Johnny DC was revived and redesigned, as a mostly-silhouette cartoonish child. His name is now used as the name of DC Comics' imprint of comics marketed primarily to children, approximately ages 8-13. The line consists primarily of books based on Warner Bros. animated TV series. These include series that began as animated features (e.g. "Scooby-Doo", "Looney Tunes", and "The Powerpuff Girls") and those based on DC Comics's superheroes ("The Batman Strikes!", "Teen Titans Go!", "The Legion of Superheroes in the 31st Century", "Justice League Unlimited"). The letter columns of these titles are supposedly edited by Johnny DC.

Jonni DC

A female version of the character appears in "Ambush Bug" comics as "Jonni DC, Continuity Cop". In early appearances, she investigated Ambush Bug's casual violations of DC Universe canon. In the 2008 miniseries "", Ambush Bug is called in to investigate Jonni DC's apparent murder.
