The Clock
Real Name: Brian O'Brien
Search for 'The Clock' on Amazon

The first costumed crime fighter to appear in American comic books, the Clock's secret identity is society man and former district attorney Brian O'Brien, whose background as an All-American quarterback helped prepare him for heroism. As the Clock, he wears a three-piece suit, a fedora, and a black full-face mask. He usually leaves a calling card bearing an image of a clock-face and the words "The Clock Has Struck."

First masked hero in American comic books (although there were masked heroes in comic strips before this).
