Young Robinhood. “A wiry, young mysterious shadow who swoops down to strangle the pompous gluttons of tainted gold and all the pits of poverty with their ill-gotten gains!” Billy Lackington wants to help the war effort and eventually strikes upon a means of doing so. He decides to follow the model of his hero, Robin Hood, and begins fighting for justice and the right with a bow and arrow as Young Robinhood. He is helped by a modern version of the Merry Men: Fatso, Squeeky, and Freckles. Billy in turn sometimes sidekicks for Bombshell. Billy is a good archer but has no superpowers. He appears in stories with titles like “The Ghost of Big Doc,” “The Return of the Veiled Lady,” and “Phantom Archer Strikes Again.”
