The Witness-1941

We've run three tales of The Witness here at 4CS before, all of them showing a Shadow type fellow mostly on the sidelines of his stories. Here we have that guy's predecessor, a gloveless masked man  in a cape who has much more of a take charge attitude to his tales!

So our hero waited until there were no witnesses, then hucked Natas (ha ha, subtle) off the cliff? Nice.

This Witness appeared in Marvel's alternately delightful/disappointing "Watchman" variant, "The Twelve," although he got pretty short shrift. According to that mini-series, he was a cop who shot an innocent man in a lapse of judgment, and was tasked by supernatural forces to atone by weighing the guilt (and witnessing the fate) of those to whom said forces directed him. I wonder how much of that actually came from the '40s?
