Real Name

Brad Hendricks

First Appearance

Daredevil Comics #5 (Nov. 1941)

Original Publisher

Lev Gleason

Bob Wood


Pilot Brad Hendricks wore the costume of the Ghost to fight against the Germans in occupied Europe. He also waged an ongoing war against the Claw, nearly killing the villain on at least one occasion. Ultimately, the Claw still managed to survive.

Maintaining a jovial and playful attitude, Brad seemingly spent the vast majority of his time in full mask and costume, even when reading his newspaper alone in his own home.

In his final appearance, he was captured by The Claw who had allied with Queen Cobra, tortured and imprisoned in her dungeon. He managed to escape and, in turn, imprison Queen Cobra under the watchful eye of the American military. As his story was discontinued, his fate remains unknown.

The Ghost Plane.

Powers and Abilities

The Ghost had no powers, but he did have the high-tech Ghost Plane (possibly a modified Bell P-59 Airacomet), which was armed with machine guns. In addition to being a skilled pilot, the Ghost was an exceptional and fearless athlete and acrobat, displaying feats of strength that would otherwise kill an ordinary man. He sometimes carried grenades.
