Mr Justice-Jackpot Comics-1942

Writer Joe Blair and artist Sam Cooper created MLJ's Mr Justice, the vengeful spectre (no pun intended) who reigned as one of the company's biggest pre-Archie stars. Here's a fun (if violent) wartime story in which the ghost of Julius Caesar sends Napoleon and the Three Musketeers back to earth in order to stem the tide of Hitler's terror. Things don't work out as intended and Mr J has to follow behind them. With two emperors already--as well as a would-be one in Uncle Adolf--it comes as a bit of a surprise when yet another dead emperor turns up late in the story as the unlikely voice of reason.
