Stripesy. Pat Dugan is a former boxer who becomes, thanks to the vagaries of fate, the chauffeur and sidekick of the Star-Spangled Kid. He is also a member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory. He has no powers but is a good boxer and fighter and an ace mechanic and inventor. His opponents range from ordinary criminals and Axis agents to the Mad Scientist Dr. Weerd, False Face, the Black Magician, the moon-mad Moonglow, Presto the criminal magician, and the rope-gimmick using Rope. He appears in stories with titles like “The Adventure of the King of Escape,” “Case of the Precious Peach,” and “The College of Crime.”
