Golden Age Origin

The Faceless Phantom, was the first opponent of the heroic Doc Strange. Like Strange, the Phantom created a formula that gave him super strength & durability, but not as much as Doc Strange. He coveted the Delta Ray Gun, a powerful weapon that could destroy anything its red ray touched it could even stop tanks and battleships.So he kidnapped its inventor Professor Thompson, father of Virginia Thompson who was Doc's fiance. The Phantom wore a skull mask and was seemingly defeated at the end of his first battle with Doc Strange.

However, in Thrilling Comics #7 (Aug. 1940), the Faceless Phantom returned with an improved formula that equaled Doc's original. Luckily, Doc had also upgraded his own formula, giving him the ability of flight. The Phantom fell from an airplane while battling Doc.

Powers and Abilities

In addition to the strength and durabilty given to him from his formula the Phantom had the ability to vanish in a cloud of purple mist. Doctor Strange suspected the ancient Egyptian chemical "Kalodin" was the reason and found a re-agent to counter it from an old manuscript.
