13. Hollywood reporter Harold Higgins has always suffered from bad luck: losing his brother to a plane crash, his sister crippled in a car accident, his fiancée to a hit-and-run, his fortune to the Stock Market crash, and his father to a ship wreck. But when he’s fired from his job and discovers that crime was behind it, he decides to turn the tables and cause bad luck to criminals. He is assisted by Jinx. Among 13’s opponents are Professor Venom, the Nazi mesmerist, and King Questionmark, “the hunchback who had a grudge and turned it into a vicious campaign of death.” He appears in stories with titles like “Crippled Vengeance,” “The Curious Riddle of Dr. Litz,” and “The Death Clock Strikes.”
First Appearance: Daredevil Comics #3 (Lev Gleason), Sept 1941. 15 appearances, 1941-1943. Created by Dick Wood and Bernard Klein.
