Pete (I). Pete (I) was created by S. Clarke Hook and appeared in over one hundred stories in The Marvel and Penny Popular from 1901 to 1922, beginning with “The Eagle of Death” (Marvel #385, March 1901).

Pete (I) is a tall, muscular African-American. He is cheerful and smart, a former sailor and circus strong man who while in a mining camp in Bolivia meets Jack Owen, a wandering, headstrong English teenager, and Sam Grant, an American hunter. They go in search of gold in Bolivia, and from there fight anarchists, revolutionaries, and other evil men from the Andes to Alaska to Japan to the Transvaal, with stops in Glasgow, Northwich, and Canterbury.
