Conqueror. The Conqueror, David Lyons, is a costumed resistance fighter active against the Germans in occupied Europe. He is saved after a plane crash by a professor who irradiates him with “cosmic rays,” which “would double my energy, double my recuperative powers, and double my muscular ability.” Lyons uses his powers for his “avowed purpose in life, which was to rid the world of the one man who was responsible for all its present troubles–Adolf Hitler.” The Conqueror also uses knives and guns against the enemy. He appears in stories with titles like "The Conqueror Vs. the Beast" and "The Blitzkrieg of Damora."
