Golden Age of Comics




Hangman

Hangman, created by Cliff Campbell and George Storm, was possibly the most violent superhero of all - an embittered executioner out to avenge the death of his brother.

The Hangman first appeared in Pep Comics #17 (July 1941) published by MLJ Magazines Inc., the precursor to Archie Comics. As well as appearing in "Pep Comics", "Black Hood Comics", "Special Comics", the Hangman had his own title in 7 quarterly issues from Spring 1942 to Fall 1943.

The Hangman was a recent college graduate named Robert Dickering. His brother John was The Comet. The Comet became the first superhero to die. He is shot as he rescues Robert from gangsters.

As he holds his dying brother, Robert swears vengence. "I'll carry on for him .. I'll bring his murderers to the Hangman! I'll be their Hangman!"
