Here's yet another entry in my A-Z Challenge for the month of April. My theme: Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters.
The Ragman first appeared in Cat-Man Comics #1, 1940, from Holyoke. He was really Jay Garson, Jr. Jay had no powers, but he disguised himself as a derelict to fool criminals! (Pretty spiffy suit, for a derelict...)
DC's Ragman premiered in Ragman #1, in 1976. His real name was Rory Regan. He had "the agility of a world class acrobat, the strength of a circus strongman and the fighting ability of a heavy weight prize fighter."
Thanks for your time.
