The Judge. The Judge was created by Norbert Davis (John Collins, Doan, William Dodd, Dr. Flame, Mark Hull, Max Latin, Simeon Saxon, Ben Shaley) and appeared in five stories in Detective Tales in 1937 and 1938, beginning with “Judge of the Damned” (Detective Tales, Oct. 1937).

The Judge is a Killer Vigilante. Benjamin Martin is a federal judge. He is also motivated by a hatred of crime—so much so that he sets himself up as judge, jury, and executioner of criminals, and kills them without hesitation.
