6) THE PROWLER


Movie producer Leo Kragg (nee Leon Cragstein) put on trench coat and mask to take on crime in the 1930s; decades later, he returned to action as a bitter, sour old man, training a new protégé as The Prowler.  It’s interesting to see his extremist “at all costs” approach being echoed in the adventures of the hero who inspired him, The Shadow…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
