"By jungle law, the ghost who walks calls forth the power of ten tigers!"
The Phantom swore an oath on the skull of his murdered father to fight evil. He is a legacy hero, passing on the mantle of The Phantom from father to son. Known by those who fear him as 'The Ghost Who Walks', the seemingly immortal figure is in his 21st incarnation. The hero has been in publication from 1936 and continues today. He is also a member of the Defenders of the Earth (and my favourite Defender). The Phantom has no superpowers, relying instead on his wits, his fists and his two .45's. If there was no Phantom, there would be no Batman.
