Red Rube. Reuben Reuben, an young orphan, finds the castle of his ancestors and discovers that the castle is full of the ghosts of those ancestors. The ghosts are all named "Reuben Reuben," and they grant him special powers, which he uses to fight crime. When Reuben says the magic words "Hey, Rube!" he turns into Red Rube, who has the powers of each of his ancestors, who were similarly super-powered. He appears in stories with titles like “The Secret Nazi Airport,” “The Fourth Dimensional Dr. Karvalla,” and “Red Rube and the Martians.”
