Zero the Silent. Zero the Silent appeared in a number of stories in Adventure (UK) in 1931 and 1932, beginning with “A Human Fly” (Adventure (UK), Feb. 14, 1931).

Zero the Silent is a disgraced policeman turned second-story man. Zero commits crimes while wearing a technologically-advanced skin-tight costume with suckers on its gloves and boats. The suit allows Zero to crawl along walls and ceilings. The suit also has a "throw ball" on an elastic attached to its wrist. Zero bowls googlies at his opponents, with the elastic bringing the ball back to him.
