Hand. “The Hand! The mysterious personality that seeks out all crime, and deals swift sure justice to master criminals who operate just beyond the arm of the law. The Big Hand’s superhuman strength–its power to appear and disappear at will–its ability to travel through space at unheard of speeds–all make it a valuable aid to law and order in suppressing crime.” The Hand is just that, a floating disembodied hand, and it leaves warnings like “The Hand is faster than the eye! The Big Hand suggests you leave here immediately!” Hand appears in “The Coming of the Hand” and “Fingering the Subversive.”
First Appearance: Speed Comics #12 (Harvey), Mar 1941. 2 appearances, 1941. Created by Ben Flinton and Bill O’Connor.
