Golden Age Origin

George Davis, a very successful (and therefore bored) big game hunter, decides to go after the most dangerous game and begins hunting criminals. He is never specifically said to have superpowers, but the stories show him surviving otherwise mortal wounds in superhuman fashion. He is cat-like in his agility and strength and is a good fighter. He is helped by his side-kick, Cub.
