Golden Age Origin

Bruce Corbet lost his brother Danny to a grenade thrown by a member of a gang called the Devils. Bruce decides after losing his brother and discovering that the Devils killed Dr. Larbins, a scientist who created a secret formula, to take matters into his own hands.

He transforms into the Mask after meditating and being surrounded in shadows. The Mask tracks down the Devil gang and blows them up with a grenade just as they did to his brother. The Devil leader however escapes to his plane and the Mask then engages him in a dogfight. Mask shoots the villain's plane down and then files a report with the police who are ecstatic with Mask's results.

The Mask then changes back into Bruce Corbet and visits his wife who works as a singer at Pompernickle's night club.
