Tor. “The world knows Tor as a fantastic magician but never as Jimmy Slade, whom he really is. As a roaming press photographer he opposes crime, fifth columnists, and all others who would thwart the law.” When someone needs help, or if evil threatens, Slade puts on a fake mustache and a magician’s costume and flies in to help. He speaks his spells backwards, and can do whatever the plot calls for him to do. He also uses sleight of hand and hypnosis. He appears in stories with titles like “Amazonia’s Fifth Column,” “Sabotage!” and “The Counterfeit Plot of Phrogg Zaran.”
