Mr. Mystic. Mr. Mystic was created by Will Eisner (Lady Luck, The Spirit) and appeared in the comic strip “Mr. Mystic” (1940-1944).

Mr. Mystic is a Superhuman Costumed Avenger. He was originally Ken, a young American explorer and adventurer, who got lost while trekking in the Himalayas and discovered the Council of Seven Lamas. They gave Ken a new name, magical powers, and a series of directions via telepathy. Mr. Mystic travels the Earth, fighting crime on every continent at the orders of the Council and always triumphing. He also romances the ladies, but his final love is Elena, an agent of darkness who becomes his Loving Enemy and then his lover.
