Inferno. Inferno is a fire-breather at a circus. Unfortunately, he's also mixed up in some illegal doings. Fortunately, Steel Sterling comes to town and sets Inferno straight. Inferno then goes on to fight crime, first as a circus worker, moving from town to town, and then later as a private eye. He has the super-power of breathing fire from his mouth; he can burn his way through steel doors and walls and can melt bullets before they reach him. Inferno fights ordinary humans, a mummy, the Human Fly, the Rattler, and the femme fatale Dark Lady. Inferno appears in stories with titles like “A Flame for Justice,” “The Prison Break Racket,” and “The Stolen Train.”
