Steel Stirling was the alter ego of John Sterling, who, after his father’s fortune was swindled by criminals, plunged his body into a cauldron of molten metal, giving him the powers of invulnerability and flight. Steel Sterling’s nemeses included the Black Knight and Baron Gestapo (a World War II-era foe, as his name indicates), as well as Twisto, the Puppet Master, the Rattler, and the Hyena.
The Jaguar, considered a knockoff of the superhero The Fly, was a zoologist named Ralph Hardy who used a magic belt to fight crime; not as successful as The Fly, his comic lasted only fifteen issues.
Mr. Justice, also known as “The Royal Wraith,” was the superhero moniker of Prince James of England, who was murdered by Scottish rebels in 1040. His spirit remained trapped in the castle where the murder took place until 1940. The dismantled castle was to be shipped to the United States until a Nazi submarine sunk the ship on which it was carried, thereby releasing the spirit of Prince James. He assumed corporal form as “Mr. Justice,” and his main nemesis was Satan himself.
