Crimebuster. Chuck Chandler, a military school cadet, is outraged by the deaths of his parents at the hands of the Nazis and the villainous Ironjaw, a spirited, brutal Nazi who lost his jaw from an exploding shell and had it replaced with a bear-trap-like arrangement. Wearing his hockey uniform plus a cape, Chuck attacks first Ironjaw and then the Axis forces and other criminals: Yellow Perils, the Nazi headsman the Chopper, the son of Iron Jaw, the transsexual He-She, the Wart, Mad Scientists, etc. Crimebuster’s partner is Squeeks, his pet monkey. Crimebuster and Squeeks appear in stories with titles like “Princess Creina and the Con Man,” “The Man Who Made Words Kill,” and “The Maddest Criminal of All–the Ape.”
