Here's the latest entry in the A-Z Challenge. My theme is "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."
The Golden Age Mask was Tony Colby, one of many District Attorneys who donned costumes and fought crime in the 1940s. He first appeared in Exciting Comics #1 (from Better Publications, 1940).
Stanley Ipkiss became a totally different Mask in Dark Horse Comics Presents #10, 1987. He wears "a magical mask which imbues the wearer with reality-bending powers and physical imperviousness, as well as bypassing the wearer's psychological inhibitions."
Thanks for your time.
