Strongman. “Strongman! He has the strength of a hundred elephants, the speed of a racing car and the skin with the toughness of a rhinoceros. He fights ever on the side of American ideals. The perfect specimen of a human being.” Percy van Norton, a playboy, acquires a "secret book of yogi" and studies it for years until he becomes "the world's most perfect man," with "the strength of countless humans and a brain without peer." He puts his super-strength and genius-level mind to work fighting crime. (He also has a "boomerang rope").
