5) ALIAS THE SPIDER

 

A rich playboy turned avenging archer, Tom Hallaway isn’t the first bow-and-arrow super-type (that honor likely goes to Centaur Comics’ The Arrow, who made his debut in 1938), but he DOES predate the similar Green Arrow by a year or so. Hallaway has much in common with The Green Hornet in his Quality adventures, but nothing about his modus operandi or uniform implies “spider” in any way. (Later tales at DC Comics would retcon him as a villainous member of the Ludlow family, all of whom bear a grudge against the immortal Shade.)

About Author

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.

    i’d say blackbolt needed to be on the list… that doesn’t “scream” sound powers to me ;)
