Nedor At The Movies?    by Mark Heike


Scarab splash pageOkay, Golden Age experts- put on your thinking caps- it’s trivia time. What costumed character from the pages of Standard/Nedor Comics made it to the Silver Screen in the 1940s? We’ve discovered something we had not previously seen documented, and we want to let our regular readers in on it. DON’T let the graphic at the head of this post fool you, it’s NOT The Scarab; we just put that there to get your attention.  Now, you might consult any number of AC’s acclaimed reprint volumes that have been almost exclusively focused on the output of Ned Pines’ comic book line, like Men of Mystery #28 or #84; or Men Of Mystery Spotlight Special #’s 1 or 2 to research this query. All are highly recommended-but to be honest you WON’T find the answer to this question in them. Give us your best educated guesses, and let’s see if anyone out there knows. This isn’t exactly a contest, as we don’t have a prize to give away to anyone knowledgeable enough to know, but let’s see how many actually do! We’ll post the answer and the proof in a week or two, so start tossing out those guesses now!

    I’m going to guess “The Lady in Red”
    This is only a guess, any similarity to actual knowledge is purely coincidental.

    A good guess, Mark, but not the correct answer. We’ll put the proof up in a week or so. Anybody else got a guess? A REAL costumede character that appeared in Nedor comics, REALLY on movie screens in the 1940’s….

    Grim Reaper. Here’s my logic, the Reaper’s costume is very similar to Spy Smasher. Some producer wanted to glom off a hit serial and put out a look-a-like.

    This is mostly a guess but I’m going to play a hunch and say The Phantom Detective.

    If you check out the new post on December 8 you’ll see the answer!

    The Scarab was the nemesis of the 1940’s Captain Marvel serials.

    Hmmmm….or was that the Scorpion?

    I kind of remember the Scarab in some old movie serial.
