The Comet was a superhero who first appeared in Pep Comics #1 in January, 1940. Possibly the first superhero killed in the line of duty, he died in issue #17 (July, 1941), which also introduced his brother, a brutal hero called the Hangman.
The company used the character again despite his death, possibly to renew copyright and ownership of the character. Twenty-five years after his death, his origin was repeated in The Mighty Crusaders #2 (1966) and again in the truncated mini-series The Comet (October-December, 1983).Download Links (Hosted by Rapidshare)
