Pelican. Pelican was created by the Spanish creator Vicente Roso and appeared in the comic Pelicano #1-20 (1944).

Pelican is a Spanish adventurer and explorer. He fights evil natives and white men in the Congo, discovers treasure hidden in the Sphinx, catches Strix, a thief who uses an invisibility suit and gas bombs, fights the Blue Dragon, a Vietnamese Yellow Peril, a submarine pirate, and an African native who kills whites with an axe while sewn into a tiger suit [sic]. He appears in stories with titles like “The Scarlet Gas,” “The Sect of the Green Lamas,” and “The Indian Goddess.”
