One day, Jake Miles is run down by an automobile and brought into Rance Raleigh's curio shop where he tries unsuccessfully to tell Rance something and then dies. But Rance's assistant Rocky sees the ancestral portrait of the Duke De Chantrey frown and Rance knows its time to go into action as the Cavalier.

Powers and Abilities

  • The Cavalier has no powers other than superlative swordsmanship, acrobatics and derring-do.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Thrilling Comics #53-54
  • The Fighting Yank #25


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
