ATOM (DC) (JUSTICE LEAGUE) (1962) #43 - Plot Synopsis


Atom #43
Guest-starring the Hawkman. The outrageous origin of the Gentlemen Ghost is told in a fear-fraught tale dubbed "Come to my Hanging." Hawkman and Hawkgirl are baffled by the phantom plunderer and the mixture of supernatural power and high-tech gimickry he uses in his crimes. Is he alive or dead. You have to travel back more than 150 years ago to witness the beginnings of the robber revenant. Gentleman Jim Craddock was king of England's highwaymen until he was brought to a gallows one day by the King's men. But instead of swinging from a rope he traveled through time to menace the present as a disembodied spirit. Can the Aerial Ace and his birdy bride stop this mysterious madman and his plans? Murphy Anderson provides the artwork for Robert Kanigher's story.

Then, the Atom tries to answer the maddening question: "Buzzin', Buzzin' Who's Got the Buzzin'." When Ray Palmer's latest theories on electromagnetism and its effect on the human brain are questioned by Professor McByrd, the head of his department, he mysteriously finds he can't concentrate well enough to argue back with anything but a bellow. And later, when he catches a star student stealing his research notes, the Atom notices a buzzing to a sound he heard during his earlier debate. Spying the miniature flying transmitter that distracted him so, the Atom follows it back to its source, the erstwhile Prof. McByrd! Story is by Denny O'Neil with art by Dick Dillin and Sid Greene. Joe Kubert provides the cover.
