Bombshell. Mars, the god of war, lives on the planet Mars. He is disgusted that Hitler has turned war into “reckless slaughter...for selfish greed! He must be stopped!” But those who leave Mars can never return. Mars decides to send his son Bombshell to punish the Germans. Bombshell does so. He is sometimes helped by Young Robin Hood. Bombshell has no superpowers, but he has his skill at arms, a bulletproof shield, and a magic sword which won't harm humans but will destroy machines. Bombshell appears in stories with titles like “Striker the Assassin” and “America Will Be An Inside Job.”
