Zippo. Zippo is private investigator Joe Blair, who puts on a costume with motorized, carborundum wheels on its feet and fights crime. He is skilled enough with the wheels to be able to catch up to speeding cars or cut his way out of a safe (the carborundum is tougher than the steel of the safe). He appears in stories with titles like “A Racket in Dolls” and “The Goblin’s Playground.”
