Real Name: Tom Mayflower
Search for 'Escapist' on Amazon

Can perform amazing feats of escapology.

The Escapist's true identity is Tom Mayflower, crippled nephew of escape artist Max Mayflower (who performs under the stage name of Misterioso). When Max is fatally shot while performing onstage, he gives Tom a golden key and a costume, explaining that he was recruited long ago by a mysterious organization called The League of The Golden Key to fight tyranny and free the oppressed. With his dying breath, Max commissions Tom to carry on his work. As long as Tom is wearing the costume and the key, he finds that he is no longer lame and can perform amazing feats of escapology. Tom uses his powers to fight crime under the guise of The Escapist, especially against the evil forces of the mysterious criminal network, The Iron Chain.
