ABOUT DWAYNE MCDUFFIE:  

Dwayne Glenn McDuffie was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. The middle son of Leroy McDuffie and Edna (Hawkins) McDuffie (now Gardner), Dwayne attended the prestigious Roeper School for gifted children before going on to earn undergraduate degrees in both English & Physics as well as a graduate degree in Physics, all at the University of Michigan. (Go, Blue!) He later also studied filmmaking at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

Dwayne first entered the comic book industry as an Editor at Marvel Comics, thanks to his NYU friend Greg Wright with whom he recreated the Deathlok character into the one in use today. With artist Ernie Colón, Dwayne also co-created the comedic Marvel team book, Damage Control.

Frustrated by the lack of diversity of both characters and creators in comics, Dwayne—together with Derek Dingle, Denys Cowan, and Michael Davis co-founded MILESTONE COMICS (later MILESTONE MEDIA), the first African American owned comic book company in history, with a mission to provide a wide array of characters, content, and creators that more accurately represent the racial, ethnic, religious, and gender diversity of real life. (Also? They were just outstandingly good books. Seriously. If you haven’t read them, seek them out. Now. You won’t believe what you’ve been missing!)

StaticIconHardwareXombi—to name just a few. Throughout his career in the comic book industry, Dwayne created or co-created these and more than a dozen other series, in addition to writing stories for too many other titles to list but here are some highlights: Justice League of AmericaFantastic FourSpider-ManBatman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Captain marvel, Avengers Spotlight, Hellraiser, Ultraman, even The Tick, and Back to The Future. Dwayne also co-created The Road To Hell with fellow writer and Milestone editor, Matt Wayne, the inaugural Director of the Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics, established posthumously by Dwayne’s widow, Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie.

Dwayne transitioned into the animation industry as a Story Editor and Writer on the Emmy-winning Kids WB series, Static Shock, which he co-created and for which he won the 2003 HUMANITAS PRIZE. Dwayne was also a Producer, Story Editor, and Writer on Cartoon Network’s JUSTICE LEAGUE and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED animated series, for which he received a 2004 WRITERS GUILD nomination.

With artist Glen Murakami, Dwayne redeveloped Man of Action’s BEN 10 animated series into BEN 10: ALIEN FORCE then BEN 10: ULTIMATE ALIEN—98 episodes of what became and continues to be an ongoing, blockbuster, 230 episodes and counting franchise for Cartoon Network. Dwayne also wrote the animated features JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRISIS ON TWO EARTHS, ALLSTAR SUPERMAN, and JUSTICE LEAGUE: DOOM, as well as episodes of WHAT’S NEW, SCOOBYDOO? and TEEN TITANS, all for Warner Bros. For his indelible work in animation, Dwayne was posthumously presented with the WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA’s 2011 ANIMATION WRITING AWARD, the first African American in history to be so honored.

The winner of 3 EISNER AWARDS for his work in comic books, 11 PARENTS’ CHOICE AWARDS, 6 “BEST EDITOR” awards, the 2009 INKPOT AWARD presented by Comic-Con International, and a GOLDEN APPLE AWARD from his alma mater for his “use of popular art to promote and enhance human dignity,” Dwayne McDuffie’s life’s work exemplified both diversity and excellence.

He led by example while presciently stating, “From invisible to inevitable” now the motto of the “Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics.” The man may be gone, but his mission lives on.


ABOUT CHARLOTTE MCDUFFIE:

Dwayne’s widow, Charlotte (Fullerton) McDuffie, is a twice Emmy-nominated animation writer, best known for her work on Hasbro’s My Little Pony and Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 franchise. She recently served as the first female chairperson in history of the Animation Writers Caucus at the Writers Guild of America.

DIVE INTO A MEGALITHIC SUPERCITY IN BONEHEAD THIS DECEMBER

First Comics News - Sat, 09/16/2017 - 14:33

PORTLAND, OR, 09/15/2017 — Writer Bryan Hill (ROMULUS, POSTAL) and Rhoald Marcellius (Marvel: Contest of Champions) unite for BONEHEAD, a gritty new techno-thriller from Image/Top Cow this December.

In a near future, a sprawling megalopolis sees the rise of “Boneheads,” parkour gangs who use neuro-linked helmets to augment their abilities and live for the thrill of physical risk. As a gang war threatens to tear the city apart, a mysterious Bonehead rises—a man with no past who might be the key to saving the city’s future.

“Glitch, the team that produces BONEHEAD, has a vision of a possible future and humanity’s simultaneous evolution with technology,” said Hill. “It’s a compelling concept that deals with many things we’re experiencing as a society, and I’m enjoying working with Rhoald on these concepts of futurism, humanity, and identity.”

“I grew up loving urban and underground culture, so it’s been my long-time dream working on gang war themed comics,” said Marcellius. “And given the cyberpunk setting, BONEHEAD is my perfect avenue. I’m also BIG on action, and this book is what it’s all about—acrobatics and street fights. The characters are designed by the talented Machine56, and I gotta tell you that the designs are sick! It’s really a bunch of my favorite stuff in a blender, and I’m having a blast. I hope you guys will too!”

BONEHEAD #1 (Diamond code: OCT170566) hits comic book stores Wednesday, December 27th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 4th.

Amanda (Wolfe) uses a magic mirror to reverse the gender roles in her small town, she gains the upper hand on her womanizing opponent, Bret (Hungtinton). As each experiences life in the other’s shoes, they must decide which reality they prefer before they’re stuck in the flipped world forever.

Second Nature, which premiered at the Napa Valley Film Festival, marks the feature debut of Michael Cross.

As we see the town’s people things are strange. It is a little funny too. The men acting all feminine is so weird.

DREAMY NEW YA FANTASY SLEEPLESS ARRIVES THIS DECEMBER

First Comics News - Sat, 09/16/2017 - 05:54

“SLEEPLESS is the fairy tale I’ve apparently been missing all my life. I love this world that feels familiar but also equally original.” —Amy Reeder (ROCKET GIRL, Madame Xanadu)

PORTLAND, OR, 09/15/2017 — Writer Sarah Vaughn (ALEX + ADA, ETERNAL EMPIRE) teams up with artist Leila del Duca (SHUTTER, AFAR), editor/colorist Alissa Sallah, and letterer Deron Bennett for the fantasy romance series SLEEPLESS this December.

Lady “Poppy” Pyppenia, daughter of a king, is ever guarded by the devoted Sleepless Knight Cyrenic. But a new king has just been crowned—and danger lurks anew around each and every corner.

“SLEEPLESS is a story that is very dear to me, grown from an idea I would play in my head at night as I tried to fall asleep,” said Vaughn. “It’s wonderful to see the book come to life with Leila, Alissa, and Deron. I hope readers enjoy reading about Poppy and Cyrenic and getting a little more romance, costumes, and fantasy in their lives.”

“I’m incredibly thrilled to be drawing a romance comic with Sarah!” said del Duca. “She has written a lush world and intriguing characters that I’m having fun falling in love with (pun intended!). We’re both huge fans of period dramas and romance, so doing our own take on the genre has been very rewarding. I love the palace intrigue, the sexual tension, the dramatic emotions, and the amazing wardrobes in this series.”

“I’m also very pleased to be working with Alissa Sallah and Deron Bennett,” added del Duca. “Alissa both edits and colors the book, giving us invaluable editorial feedback along with turning in gorgeous colors. She uses a lot of flat colors on top of watercolor and ink textures, which stylistically fits perfectly for the tone of the story. Deron has chosen a unique lettering style for our book that also lends a particular moodiness to the book. I can’t wait to share what our team has created!”

“It’s an honor to work on such a fantastic story with Leila and Sarah,” said Sallah. “The world of SLEEPLESS has such a dreamy vibe to it. And so dramatic! This is a story that feels very refreshing right now in comics, and we thank everyone for their support!”

SLEEPLESS #1, Cover A by Leila del Duca and Alissa Sallah (Diamond code: OCT170590) and Cover B by Jen Bartel (Diamond code: OCT170591), hits comic book shops Wednesday, December 6th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, November 13th.

First Comics News - Sat, 09/16/2017 - 00:11

A new adventure for Luke and Leia begins this December

 

New York, NY—September 15, 2017—Marvel’s STAR WARS comics have pulled back the curtain on fan favorite Captain Phasma, introduced the world to rogue archeologist Doctor Aphra, and crafted stories that have enthralled fans across the galaxy. This December, even more secrets will be revealed when Marvel releases STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT #1. Written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars), the new mini-series gives fans a look behind the curtain at one very special planet in the galaxy: the mineral planet Crait.

 

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it becomes a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order,  but that wasn’t the first time Crait became a place where heroes and villains clashed in their fight for the galaxy. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa once took up arms on Crait and led the rebellion as they as they searched for a new home – and a new base for the Rebel Alliance. Tying in to the eagerly anticipated December film, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT promises to be a new and exciting adventure for all Star Wars fans – and a story that will change the galaxy as we know it.

 

“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White, “Tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the Galaxy Far Away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit in for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has did such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”

All-New Rocko’s Modern Life Comic Book Series Launches at BOOM! Studios

First Comics News - Sat, 09/16/2017 - 00:03

 

The series will debut in December following the launch of the new Rugrats comic book in October

September 15, 2017 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – BOOM! Studios and Nickelodeon are excited to announce ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE, a new ongoing comic book series based on the popular animated show about everyone’s favorite wallaby! Writer Ryan Ferrier (Regular Show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and artist Ian McGinty (Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors) team to launch the first comic book in the series in December 2017. Each issue will also feature bonus short stories by different illustrators, including Tony Millionaire (Sock Monkey), KC Green (Invader Zim), and David DeGrand (SpongeBob Comics).

Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filburt, the Bigheads, and the entire cast of O-Town are back, but all is not well. The town is facing a job shortage and Rocko is hit hard. With unemployment and potential homelessness on the horizon, Rocko’s problems are just beginning. But with help from his best friends Heffer and Filbert and his faithful dog Spunky, Rocko is (mostly) ready to take on the world (maybe).

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE was one of the standout series for me growing up, as it really struck a chord with me in how similar it was to my own sensibilities and sense of humor, even at that younger age,” says series writer Ferrier. “Working on this series, especially knowing how incredible Ian is going to make it, has made me an even bigger fan.”

Series artist Ian McGinty adds, “Fans are gonna be pretty blasted away by how well the new comic blends ’90s nostalgia with modern sentiment, and a Mystery Science Theater 3000-esque vibe that I find really, really cool.”

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE marks the second series in the partnership between BOOM! Studios and Nickelodeon through BOOM Studios’ award-winning, all-ages imprint, KaBOOM!. The first series of this partnership debuts October 18 with Rugrats #1, from writer Box Brown (André the Giant: Life and Legend) and artist Lisa DuBois (Adventure Time).

“Working with Nickelodeon on Rugrats and now ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE has been amazing,” says Editor Whitney Leopard. “We’ve been a fan of their shows for years and to be able to work with them on bringing these characters to life in comics is a dream come true.”

ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE #1 features a main cover by Jorge Monlongo (Adventure Time Comics), a “look-and-find” cover by Bachan (Bill & Ted Save the Universe), and a variant cover by Nick Pitarra (The Manhattan Projects). BOOM! Studios will also be offering a blank Sketch Cover for this launch.

Print copies of ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE #1 will be available for sale in December at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or through the BOOM! Studios webstore.

VENOM INC Arrives In The Marvel Universe!

First Comics News - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 23:59

Ryan Stegman, Dan Slott and Mike Costa lead the six-issue crossover starting in December

 

New York, NY—September 15, 2017—Venom is sweeping across the Marvel Universe, and in an epic new crossover, Eddie Brock finally makes his way into Spider-Man’s world with VENOM INC. Announced exclusively on Marvel’s weekly podcast This Week In Marvel, the six-part story kicks off in VENOM INC/ALPHA #1, written by superstar writers Dan Slott and Mike Costa, with art by Ryan Stegman.

 

“We’re in a bit of a Venom renaissance—a Ven-aissance?—of late, and I got real excited when I not only heard about Venom Inc., but that we’d get to announce it on This Week in Marvel!” said Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Executive Editor of Marvel Digital Media. “If you haven’t listened to any of the 300+ episodes of This Week in Marvel yet, I hope you come for the news we’ll continue to break going forward, and stay for the interviews, in-depth look at all the amazing Marvel Comics out each week, great community, and more.”

 

Following ALPHA #1, the story continues in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and VENOM. At the heart of the story? The relationship between fan favorites Peter Parker and Eddie Brock…who haven’t been face-to-face in years. Add in Flash Thompson, and this is one reunion you’re not going to want to miss.

 

“Flash Thompson] got to be that hero when he was Venom….but that was everything he’d wanted. And now it’s gone. It was robbed from him. And so, he’s trying to figure out what his role in life is…and where that story goes, I’m not gonna tell you,” teased Executive Editor Nick Lowe.

 

What can be said about VENOM INC? “You don’t get much more LEGACY than this story,” promised Lowe. “Twists! Turns! Classic Spider-Man characters, but all treading on new ground! And to have Ryan Stegman returning to AMAZING SPIDER-MAN? I’m embarrassed by the creative riches here!”

 

With classic Spider-Man characters, new villains, infamous Venom symbiote, and blockbuster storytelling by both the SPIDER-MAN and VENOMVERSE teams, VENOM INC promises to rock the world of our favorite Wall-Crawler. Don’t miss the most adventurous crossover yet – VENOM/ALPHA #1 hits comics shops on December 6th!

X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN by HIP-HOP FAMILY TREE Award Winning Cartoonist Ed Piskor: The Definitive Remix of X-Men History

First Comics News - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 19:00

30 Years of Iconic Comics Books, 8,000 Storytelling Pages, 1 Unexpected, Unprecedented and Uncanny Undertaking

New York, NY—September 15, 2017— “Ed Piskor is one of the most exciting cartoonists working today and seeing the iconic X-men filtered through his singular vision is the sort of comic book project that you can usually only dream about. But this dream is real, and it is a thing to behold!” — Jeff Lemire (DESCENDER, MOON KNIGHT)

Marvel Comics and Eisner Award-winning indie cartoonist indie Ed Piskor are teaming up for an unexpected, unprecedented, and uncanny undertaking. Best known for documenting the history of hip hop with the award winning HIP HOP FAMILY TREE graphic novels, Ed Piskor will sample and distill more than 8,000 pages of superheroic storytelling to create a definitive remix of the first 280 original issues of X-Men comic books and 30 years of complicated continuity into one seamless masterpiece of superheroic storytelling. Piskor will write, draw, ink, color and letter all six 40 page issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, which Marvel will publish over three years as three separate but interconnected mini-series — X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-SECOND GENESIS and X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN-X-TINCTION.

“X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN is a tribute to everything comic book fans love about the X-Men from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original run and Chris Claremont’s, epic 16-year stint as the series’ writer,” said Piskor. “It’s a compelling and complete story with a beginning, middle and an end, featuring everything from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Cerebro and the Danger Room to the Mutant Massacre, the Reavers, Gambit, and Genosha.”

“Ed Piskor is a singular talent,” said Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso. “And he is unleashing the same passion, craft and attention to detail that fuels his award-winning HIP-HOP FAMILY TREE on a five decades worth of X-Men stories.”

On December 9th, 2017, Marvel will publish the debut issue of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN. On April 17, 2018, Marvel will collect both issues of X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN, as an oversized paperback collection in the same size and format as HIP HOP FAMILY TREE, and will also include the first issue of X-MEN by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby masterfully recolored by Piskor, and a host of recolored classic pinups. Each X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN trade paperback will feature a classic X-MEN comic book, recolored by Piskor.

What people are saying about X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN:

“X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN is genius – an epic love letter to my favorite childhood comic. It’s pop culture journalism and comics history filtered through the imagination of a master storyteller. It’s a unique interpretation of the Marvel Universe and a pleasure to read. Every page is a thrill.”—Jim Rugg (STREET ANGEL)

“Seeing a creator achieve a lifelong dream by pouring his heart and soul into a project is both rewarding and encouraging…. Ed’s retro artistic style and his love of the classic X-Men is going to propel GRAND DESIGN to the top of the selling chart and become a classic itself.”—MOVIEPILOT

“Piskor’s art is at the height of its powers in these pages. New readers and old guard comic book fans will appreciate GRAND DESIGN’s streamlining and distillation of the X-MEN’s epic, but convoluted saga. We will discover Piskor invented a new approach to present legendary past stories. Instead of starting a news series at issue #1 we’re better off in the retelling and refining of wonderfully raw past material we adore. It worked for Homer why not comics.”—Benjamin Marra, (NIGHT BUSINESS, TERROR ASSAULTER: O.M.W.O.T.)

“Unprecedented.”—PITTSBURGH CITY PAPER

“Ed is crazy enough to take thousands of X-Men pages and filter them through his own vision. He’s passionate enough to pull it off, too, as this isn’t simply an archival exercise. By tying all those pages together, Ed skillfully equips the material with a logic that was absent before, thus meeting our obsessive culture’s modern expectations. It’s a blast, this comic.”—Michael Fiffe (COPRA, ZEGAS)

KNOW YOUR MIGHTY CRUSADERS: Hangman

First Comics News - Fri, 09/15/2017 - 07:13

Created by:

Cliff Campbell & George Storm

Real Name:

Robert Dickering

Joined Mighty Crusaders:

The Hangman is not a member of the Mighty Crusaders.

First Appearance:

Pep #17, July 1941

Origin:

Robert “Bob” Dickering adopted the secret identity of the Hangman to avenge the Death of his brother the Comet.

History:

When Robert Dickering decided to visit his brother John shortly after he graduated with a Master’s degree, he didn’t know at the time that this act would change his life forever. When he entered John’s apartment, he found John Dickering changing from the costume of the Comet to his street clothes and learned that his brother John was the super-powered vigilante known as the Comet. John then introduced Bob to his girlfriend, newspaper reporter Thelma Gordon and asked Bob to squire her around town while he caught up on lab work. An argument over Thelma led to Bob storming out of the apartment, only to be waylaid by two gangsters working for racketeer Big Boy Malone mistaking him for John Dickering, who was to testify against one of Malone’s cohorts.

John Dickering saw his brother being taken captive and quickly went into action as the Comet. Pursuing the car, the Comet disintegrated one of tires with his “disolvo-vision” causing the vehicle to crash. As Bob Dickering emerged from the car to flee only to be shot at by Malone’s men. The Comet then swooped down tried to shield his brother by taking the gunfire intended for Bob. As several policemen got involved in what quickly turned into a shootout, the younger Dickering quickly rushed his dying brother to his apartment via a fire escape during the confusion. With his brother Bob and Thelma Gordon at his side, John Dickering a-k-a the Comet died of his injuries. Not before telling Bob and Thelma to stay together as a memorial to him. But Bob, remembering his brother’s sacrifice made this vow:

“I’ll carry on for him, Thel! I’ll bring his murderers to the hangman! I’LL BE THEIR HANGMAN!” (Pep Comics #17)

Remembering that criminals were cowards at heart, he chose the image of an executioner to strike fear in the hearts of criminals. And to push this image forward, he chose to flash the image of a gallows and noose to herald his arrival. This projection became as much of a trademark as the green and dark blue costume Bob Dickering wore as the Hangman.

The Hangman began his mission of vengeance by kidnapping Malone’s associate Chugger as he was led out of the courthouse by Malone’s attorney. The Hangman sweated a confession out of Chugger by placing him in a dark room and projecting an image of the gallows to frighten him into confessing all he knew. He then went to Malone’s hideout and after a fight with Malone and his men, he left them in the hands of the police who had arrived after he telephoned them to be there. Malone was found guilty and was executed by hanging for his crimes. Thus began the career of the Hangman. (Pep Comics #17)

After that first case, the Hangman quickly established himself in the crime-busting field, but his career nearly came to a premature end just when it was beginning. A criminal known as the Jackal successfully framed the Hangman for a series of murders by hanging he committed while wearing a duplicate of the Hangman’s uniform. So successful was the frame-up that Thelma Gordon was convinced that the Hangman was becoming a ruthless killer vigilante like his brother the Comet (despite the fact that Bob Dickering consciously chose not to kill in his crime crusade). Fortunately, Thelma Gordon believed in him and gave him information about the real killer she learned from an African-American male who bore the unfortunate nickname of Anthracite. With that information, the Hangman broke out of jail and successfully apprehended the Jackal; getting him to confess to his crimes in the meantime (Pep #18).

The Jackal would eventually return to bedevil the Hangman on two more occasions. The first came after he faked his own death on the gallows and sought revenge against those who put him behind bars, including the Hangman. The Hangman was able to catch up to the Jackal just as he was trying to kill Thelma. During a climatic battle with the Hangman, the Jackal tried to escape via a rope only to have the rope catch around his neck inadvertently hanging himself (Pep #20). Surprisingly he survived that encounter with the rope breaking his fall. He sought refuge in a monetary where he used it as a base of operations to allow him to commit further crimes. During a final confrontation with the Hangman, he fled into the woods by the monetary and perished when he fell into a lye pit (Special Comics #1).

Gradually, the Hangman became that rarity in law-enforcement circles, a costumed vigilante whom law-enforcement officials actually approved of. This was due in large part to the fact that the Hangman chose consciously not to kill any of the criminals he encountered. This was in marked contrast to the homicidal activities of his brother, the Comet (who disintegrated many felons with blasts of his “disolvo-vision”). But the fact that the Hangman chose not to kill didn’t prevent many of the criminals that encountered him from inadvertently meeting premature (and often gruesome) demises. All which occurred either as the felons fought the Hangman or tried to escape from him. It was these incidents – coupled with his chosen image – that made the Hangman one of the most feared of the great “mystery-men” in the underworld.

In the Spring of 1942, the Hangman had his first encounter with his most frequent adversary, the Nazi terrorist/fifth columnist known as Captain Swastika. In their first encounter, the Hangman prevented him from killing the daughter of an imprisoned German official in order to prevent her from revealing vital information about his organization, the Legion of the Swastika, to the American authorities (Hangman #2). Captain Swastika (often assisted by his top henchman, Ice-Pick) returned to bedevil the Hangman on four other occasions over the course of that year.

In his second duel with the Hangman, Captain Swastika broke out hundreds of criminals from various jails across the country in an attempt to use them as a terrorist army to in effect, launch a second civil war in the United States (Pep #28). Later, he tried to hijack a newly launched battleship in order to deliver it to his Nazi masters (Pep#29). In his fourth duel, he teamed up with a Japanese axe-murderer called the Executioner in an attempt to lure their mutual foe – the Hangman – into a death duel (Hangman #3). On the fifth and final occasion, Captain Swastika and his men tried to destroy Mexico’s vital oil fields in order to cripple the Allied cause. During the climatic battle with the Hangman, Captain Swastika met his untimely demise when he was inadvertely impailed with an icepick thrown by Ice-Pick in an effort to kill the Hangman (Pep #34).

Throughout his career, the Hangman fought against other equally impressive adversaries as well. Among them included such villians as the Walrus, the Missionary, the Hunter, Mother Goose, the Executioner, and the Snail among others. Some of them eventually went to the gallows for their crimes. While others inadvertley met untimely demises during their encounters with the Hangman.

The Hangman’s celebrated career as a crime fighter lasted until the end of World War II. Whatever became of him after the war remains in doubt and has fueled many rumors about him and his postwar life. Among those rumors include the one that stated that the Hangman briefly went on the wrong side of the law before going back into crime-fighting. Whatever the case may be, these rumors have only added to the legend of the dark knight known as the Hangman.

The Hangman as no superhuman powers, but is an Olympic level athlete, master of hand to hand combat. has superior deductive abilities, and psychological skills
