The Clock Strikes
Now presenting our hero, "The Clock!" While it is certainly a mysterious name for a comic book hero, it does not sound like the most fearsome name ever used. In this 1937 comic, posted on Four Color Shadows, The Clock is summoned by an equally mysterious girl known as "The Orchid" to break up a protection racket. No superpowers, just a suit, a mask and fists. I mean seriously though, "The Clock?" Are there any other household appliance heroes out there? Even "The Toaster" sounds at least a little more dangerous.
