Referred to as The Ghost Who Walks, the Phantom is a legacy character whose roots trace back to the fictional African country of Bangalla. For centuries, men have donned a domino mask, skintight costume, guns and a pair of rings to right wrongs and fight evil doers.
Created by Falk in 1936, The Phantom has gone on to have a long life appearing in serials, comics, cartoons, a 1996 film starring Billy Zane and a 2010 Syfy miniseries.
