When a superhero kills in comics these days, it is a big deal. Ths was not the case in the golden age.

Jack Cole is remembered for his creation of silly superhero Plastic Man, but the stretchy superhero wasn't his first super powered savior.

Enter The Comet!

Pep Comics #1 All things by Jack Cole



If you go looking for Jack Cole writing and art, know that he left The Comet on Pep #8.
This a a restoration of an old s_d post.

I could mention so many things, but I can really only think about the logic of disintegrating the dust particles to create a smoke screen. That... That is just wow on the logic department, and yes, I read the rest of it.

Also, it is kind of awesome how the thugs realize that Comet cannot disintegrate glass, so they line a room with glass and then go in to it with the Comet. Exactly what did they think the glass would do there?

Also, must be some pretty sturdy glass, I'm surprised Comet didn't just plow right through it anyways.

Also, this guy strikes me as a less creative version of Stardust. They're both wanton mass murderers, but at least Stardust was creative. If this was him he's scoop up all the badguys, merge them into one bad guy, squeeze that guy into a ball, slam dunk him into a wormhole where he would come out the other side into a Pac Man game, where he would then become a ghost and get eaten by Pac Man.

Good thing he didn't discover those weren't homing pigeons, just standard pigeons who arrived at a house at random....

Yeah it's a really sweet design. I imagine it was an influence on both Nexus and Cyclops.

If you hadn't said anything, I would have thought this was a Fletcher Hanks comic.

I am too distracted by that weird costume to pay much attention to the story...
