The Fighting Hobo
At first glance this might seem like a comedic one-off or an errant idea, but for a time there was a trend for heroic hobos; they wandered the world fighting crime and living life in a happy-go-lucky manner. And the Fighting Hobo wasn’t the first — that honor belongs to a similar hero named the Vagabond. But the Vagabond was hinted at being a police officer in disguise, while for all intents and purposes the Fighting Hobo was the real deal. Debuting in 1942′s "U.S.A. Comics" #5, the tramp hero was Butch Brogan (a great comic name!), and he knew as much about the works of Shakespeare as he did about cleaning a catfish. Sadly, he has yet to make a second appearance.
