The Spirit (Will Eisner)
Real Name: Denny Colt
Search for 'The Spirit (Will Eisner)' on Amazon

Powers:
None, except an extraordinary capacity for punishment

Bio:
The Spirit was born Denny Colt, a criminologist who grew up in Central City (in reality New York), and who while pursuing Dr. Cobra, an criminal genius with a plan to contaminate the Central City water supply, fell into a puddle of the fluid Dr. Cobra had planned to dump into the water supply and apparently died. However, the fluid in question did not kill Denny Colt; it merely placed him in suspended animation. Upon awakening in his grave in Wildwood Cemetery, Denny donned a blue mask and gloves and opted to continue fighting crime as The Spirit.

Notes:
The Spirit first appeared in the Spirit Section #1 of the Des Moines Register and Tribune Syndicate on June 2, 1940. The Spirit was created by comic book legend Will Eisner.
