Carson, Clip. Clip Carson is a tough, two-fisted "soldier of fortune" and adventurer. He travels the world with his archaeologist friend, Jim Blake, fighting native tribesmen and having the usual sort of freebooter adventures around the world, from China to Alaska to the Panama Canal. He has no superpowers but is a hardy, tough fighter. His enemies begin as ordinary opponents for a soldier of fortune but soon become fantastic, including Mad Scientists, Yellow Perils, and supervillains with names like “The Cipher” and “Mr. K.” He appears in stories with titles like “The Cult of the Tiger,” “Calero the Rebel Leader,” and “Mr. Z.”
