Origin

Dr. Ghoul was a mad scientist who had invented a machine that transformed men into ghoulish superhuman beings. The machine resembled an iron lung in appearance and used electricity to trigger the transformation. As ghouls the men were bulletproof and under the Doctor's control. The Doctor crossed paths with Bob Benton and Tim when he kidnapped Richard Benton, Bob's uncle, from his ranch in Wyoming after Benton had been invited to visit.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Black Terror #12

Notes

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
