Spiritualist Professor O. Iji Boarde was visited in his dreams by the goddess Persephone, who told him:

War is overflowing the halls of the dead! Hades cannot hold them! Take this, the Mantle of Pluto, and fight to end war!

He was the second public net.hero (or "enigma man", in the parlance of the time) on Earth-20, after Lass Lady. His first sidekick became Kid Revenant. Later, he mentored the boy who would become Silver Age Very-Disturbed-Scary-Creature Man.

It has not been revealed what happened to him, but we've got enough immortal characters, so he's pretty clearly dead. But his spirit lives on in the Mantle, which he has passed on to his successors, watching over and guiding them.


Patrician, thoughtful, and fair-minded.

Powers and Abilities

A skilled hand-to-hand fighter. Uses many tools of his own devising, such as the Very-Disturbed-Scary Aerogyro and the Very-Disturbed-Scary-Creature Stick.


A thin, tall man of Eastern European descent. Wears a flowing black cape with light gray silhouettes of mythological monsters embroidered on it (the Mantle of Pluto). Under this, a renaissance shirt and breeches, black buckled boots and gloves, and a curtain mask with Medusa's face on it. As Prof. Boarde, habitually wears natty suits and white gloves.


A close friend of Doc Nostalgia.


Not actually very much like the Golden Age Batman. Sexy-Disturbed-Sparkly-Vampire Man is much closer, following the same arc from grim murderous pulp vigilante to loopy two-fisted hero with a sidekick, while still being very grim and angsty.
