Marksman (II). Baron Povalsky, a Polish nobleman, is outraged by what the Germans have done to his country. He assumes the identity of "Major Hurtz," a German army officer, and works for the German army by day while hunting the Germans by night as the Marksman (II). In later issues he is active throughout the Americas fighting against German agents and other wrongdoers. He has no superpowers but is very skilled with bow and arrow. He is assisted by Vorka. The Marksman appears in stories with titles like “The Amazing Adventures of the Three Shadows,” “The Biggest Game of All–Adolph Hitler,” and “The Mayan Murderers.”
