Captain Swastika

Real Name


First Appearance

Hangman Comics #2

Original Publisher


Created By


Captain Swastika was a famed Nazi saboteur and the most frequently recurring archenemy of the Hangman.

The two first crossed paths by accident after the Hangman (in his civilian identity) picked up a distressed woman being pursued by Captain Swastika because of her knowledge regarding a country-wide sabotage plot.

While his face appears to be covered by a simple mask, Captain Swastika's insistence of wearing it even when disguising himself implies that it may simply have been his actual face.
