History

One of several supervillains freed from jail by the Brain in America’s Greatest Comics #1, Ghost was sent to kill FBI Chief Doover [sic].

Ghost managed to frighten Doover’s servant Rastus, a shameful black racial stereotype of the day, who says things like “What am dat ? A ghost ! Laigs, do yo duty !” and “Lawd help me ! Now ah sees a scarlet boy !”. This leaves Pinky to “wonder why that darky was so scared.”

Just as the Ghost is about to kill Doover, Pinky rushes in and stops him. However, the Ghost takes off his sheet (costume) and covers Pinky up with it. The Ghost then flees, but Pinky has saved Doover. The Ghost runs back to the Brain’s HQ, where he is later KO’ed by Pinky.


Description

He’s a guy wearing a sheet ! Nuff said ! Well, not quite. His costume consists of two parts : a floppy bag with eye holes cut out for a mask, and a sheet which is neatly tailored to have sleeves.

Under the sheet, the Ghost is bald and wears a suit.


Quotes

“Whoo ! Whooooo !”


DC Universe History

In the post-Crisis Universe, there is no reason why he could not have existed.
