Masked Marvel (Centaur)
Real Name:
Search for 'Masked Marvel (Centaur)' on Amazon

Powers:
None. Like Batman, he was a masked hero who relied on his physical prowess and gadgets. He was possessed of a "secret hideout" in the form of a glass-domed headquarters atop an isolated mountain.

Bio:
The original Masked Marvel was perhaps the most aptly named. Unlike virtually every other masked hero, he remained permanently masked, even to his readers. He was never given a secret identity in his entire original run. Technically, he was never given a super-hero name, either, as "Masked Marvel" was just an appellation assigned to him by the press; it wasn't particularly made clear that it was the name he had adopted for himself.

This ambiguity was exploited by Malibu, when they revived the Centaur heroes in the modern era. In the modern revision it became clear he called himself "Nightmask". His secret identity was also revealed to be Philip Reinhart.

His crime-fighting legacy was continued through his son, Richard, who became the "new" Nightmask.
