The Firefly-Warren King-1942

A superhero whose power is that his gluteus maximus glows in the dark? I dunno...Actually, the Firefly was just an ordinary guy, an entomologist, who taught himself how to utilize his strength and skills at full capacity...the way insects do. Not much better is it? Another cool MLJ costume, though. Here he is drawn by Warren King from near the end of his run.


  1. Boy, Warren King sure got a lot of panels squeezed in there.

    And I'd love to see an updated version based on your joking premise.

  2. I'd note that the story here borrows multiple elements from The Devil-Doll (1936).
