Powers and Abilities

He can turn invisible. The source of this power is never explained. He might have Gadgetry and/or Scientist, but he seems more like a dumb gangster who may have forced some other scientist to hand over such a discovery.


History

AFAIK, this Invisible Man only appeared in America’s Greatest Comics #1, where he begins a crime spree that Bulletman is helpless to stop.

Eventually, Bulletman and Bulletgirl disguise themselves as old folks and hitch a ride with a gold bullion carrying truck, to guard it from the Invisible Man.

Despite their presence, the Invisible Man steals the truck. However, they are able to track one of his goons back to their secret lair. The Bullets smash through the mountainside, thrash the gang, and defeat the Invisible Man by turning out the lights.


Description

None. He’s invisible. 🙂

Well, when he’s not invisible, he looks like a normal guy in a suit and hat. He may have been intended to be Asian though – it’s not clear on some panels.


Quotes

“Nobody can catch me—I’m the Invisible Man !”


DC Universe History

In the post-Crisis Universe, the Invisible Man would easily have remained a Bulletman and Bulletgirl foe.
