My Favorite Super Hero: The Phantom

America has given us a string of masked fighers against crime who all represint the good against evil. We have Superman, Batman  and Spider man and some lesser known heroes. My pick however is the Phantom also known as the 'Ghost who walks'.

The Phantom is acharacter similar to other American heroes and wears a blue dress and mask. however ther is a significant difference as he isthe only man who resides in the African jungle, where he has a cave  covered by a waterfall that leads to his abode. The Phantom has a second identity as Mr Walker.

The Phantom is

immortal and thus the natives rever him as the Ghost who walks. In reality the Phantom is very miuch mortal and once the older Phantom dies his successor the next Phantom is his son. but tales spread fast in the Jungle where the African tribesmen consider him immortal.

The present  Phantom is the xiii Phantom in line. He is a modern educated  man who is also a martial arts specialist.  He wears


a ring with a skull impression on it and when he lets a blow go from his hand the ring leaves  the mark of the skull on the victim. The phantom also has a belt with 2 pistols. He is loved by the local tribals who he looks after from exploiters and hunters.

The Phantom  also has a lady llove Diana, a beautiful girl fro good old America who falls in love with the Phantom and journeys with him to teh African jungles. the tales of teh Phantom make thrilling reading. As a boy I grew up on tales of teh Phantom. he is my favorite. Hollywood has also filmed the Phantom. One hopes a movie on the Phantom on the scale of Batman will soon hit the screen. In the meantime the Phantom carries on his battle against crime. He is the Phantom, but he represnts Good against evil
