Spy Smasher (01 - Earth-S)
Real Name: Alan Armstrong
Search for 'Spy Smasher (01 - Earth-S)' on Amazon

None, aside from a keen intellect and a talent for gadgetry. He is greatest creation was undoubtedly the "Gyrosub", the combination of an airplane, automobile and submarine.

Ordinary human mortal.

Consider this character a World War 2 front-line Batman.

A master detective adept at the creation of gadgets, Alan Armstrong put his talents to use against the Axis powers. He was frequently involved in missions that hit close to the leadership of wartime Germany, Japan and Italy. When the war ended, so did his mission.

He briefly appeared as "Crime Smasher", an urban American detective, but the idea proved too unpopular to sustain a second issue.

Like the Marvel and Sivana Families, He was caught up in Dr. Sivana's Suspendium experiment, in the early 1950s and slept in suspended animation until the 1970s. He re awoke under the guise of Spy Smasher, not Crime Smasher, perhaps suggesting that the crime fighting gig had been too mundane for this talented inventor-detective. He then undertook a few Cold War-era missions.

Though he did get his own title, briefly, the bulk of his appearances were in WHIZ Comics, where he was second only to Ibis the Invincible for most continuous appearances.
