nobody gave it a name so i call it the stone age of superheroes

ogon batto or better know in some latin country`s as fanthomas or Fantaman
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!
i have always been fascinated with the extraordinary heroes from before superman`s debut
i happened to make a list of these heroes most of them are from the french  shadowmen though
and i don't think heroes from the league of extraordinary gentlemen count since they are reinvented into a comic to suit the storyline
