A cab driver named Matty Martin (or, depending on the story, Michael Shayne) became the costumed crime fighter Reckoner after changing into his top hat, cloak, and sometimes a black mask. None of the stories ever explained what prompted him to do this in the first place.

Chipper was an orphaned boy he met during his first (published) adventure.
