Okay, this one may get a bit screwy since there were variations in how the character's secret identity was spelled and in who later claimed the identity of The Destroyer. But let's try it anyway!

Keen Marlow (also sometimes spelled "Marlowe") first appeared in Mystic Comics #6 (October 1941). Not only did he rate the cover spotlight, but he got two separate stories featured in that issue!




Created in part by young Stan Lee for Timely Comics, The Destroyer was a bit different than many typical American heroes at the time because, unlike many who primarily had their stories set in the United States or other Allied countries, Marlow(e) was an American who was operating against the forces of the Axis powers in Nazi Germany!
