    Amid the relentless bad news of the Great Depression, America had become fascinated with J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. Super Heroes did not yet exist in comics, but the industry was casting about for reliable money makers and adventurers and law and order types were beginning to make headway, In this issue, Siegel and Shuster introduced Federal Men starring FBI agent Steve Carson, who investigated kidnappings and other federal crimes above the reach of local law enforcement.
