Casey. Casey is a fast talking, rough edged, roughed up, rumpled crime photographer ("the smartest, toughest news cameraman in the business") with a nose for trouble. He's a Boston Irishman, burly and hot tempered but good at getting the job done. He keeps a .38 and a bottle of whiskey in his desk drawer, and is as tough with his fists and as good with his gun as he is good with his camera. He splits his time between doing his job and actually solving crimes. Although he solves the cases he gets involved in, the police hate him. Casey is accompanied by Ann Williams, a writer for Casey's newspaper and Flash's (possible) love interest; she's smart, experienced, tough, good with a gun, and not incapable of the occasional snappy one liner. Casey works for Editor Burke, a Perry White lookalike. Casey is not above going undercover in a gang in order to crack a big case and get a scoop; as often as not he is the cause of a crime being solved as the one arriving afterwards to take pictures.
First Appearance: Casey - Crime Photographer #1 (Marvel), Aug 1949. 4 appearances, 1949-1950. Created by Vernon Henkel and ? Note: Casey is based on George Harmon Coxe’s character Casey.
