Red Rover. Jimmy Rover, inspired by the story of the Red Rover, “legendary figure of the night,” is given half a ring by a man he saves from drowning. Later, in a trap door in a cavern, Rover finds a costume and the other half of the ring: “after a century of separation the sacred ring of Red Rover is again molded into one and transforms little Jimmy into the all powerful, twentieth century Red Rover!” With his new super-strength and his costume, Rover goes on to fight crime.
