Captain Valiant. Bruce Barton is a Broadway actor who is understudying for the role of Captain Valiant in a play. Barton gets his chance to play the lead the same night gangsters try to take the night’s proceeds. He is a smash as an actor and as a fighter, and after beating up the gangsters decides to “erase crime from the face of the Earth.” He has no superpowers but is good at make up and disguise and good in a fight. He fights ordinary criminals–men with names like “Buttons” and gunsels with names like “The Fiddler.”
