    Mouthpiece was a character published by Quality Comics. He first appeared in Poilce Comics #1 (August 1941) until issue #13. He was created by Fred Guardinner.

    Bill Perkins was a District Attorney from New York City who thought that the law was not strong enough. He decided to don a costume to apprehend criminals that escaped justice. He became the Mouthpiece. He was ruthless, and was prepared to kill criminals when he needed to.  He once threw a harpoon into the back of a fleeing criminal, Peg-Leg Friel, rather than let him get away.

    Mouthpiece was a skilled brawler and marksman also; an above-average detective and an expert in criminal law.

    In Dr. Md-Nite #1 (1999), there is mention of a lawyer named "Mouthpiece". Whether this person is Bill Perkins is unknown.
