History: It was August, 1939 when the masked hero known as The
Invisible Hood made his first recorded appearance. Just like any mystery man of
that era, little was known about the man under the mask, but in the
case of The Invisible Hood...even less so. His origin to this day is still
unknown. What is known is that The Hood wore a hooded costume treated
with a "secret chemical" that renders the costume invisible. Using this
discovery for the benefit of mankind, he donned a chemically treated
costume of his own design to become the Hooded Justice, an unseen avenger
of wrongs. But in his second adventure changes his name to the
Invisible Justice, and upon further adventures, his most commonly know alias of
the Invisible Hood. Operating out of New York, the Invisible Hood
managed to make a small name for himself as one of the earliest masked
In 1941, super hero Uncle Sam had a vision of Japanese zeroes bombing
an American naval base, while he is fighting a group of homegrown
fascists called Steel Helmets. With the threat impending, Uncle Sam recruited
The Invisible Hood along with other heroes Miss America, the Red
Torpedo, Neon the Unknown; Magno the Magnetic Man, plus the more experienced
Hourman who first referred to this group as "Freedom Fighters." This
first set of Freedom Fighters engaged a group of Japanese zeroes over the
Pacific Ocean, including a kamikaze, on December 7, 1941. This team
succeeded in preventing the first wave of Japanese attacks on Pearl
Harbor, but Uncle Sam's first incarnation of Freedom Fighters are apparently
all killed in their first foray (although it is later revealed Neon The
Unknown and Magno are the only ones to actually perish). Only Uncle
Sam escaped relatively unscathed.
As it turns out though, that when the navy ships that eventually found
Uncle Sam and Miss America arrive, they don't realize that the Hood is
still alive (or there at all) because he's invisible! The Japanese
eventually find the unconscious Hood, and fish him out of the Pacific. The
Invisible Hood was held in the captivity of the Japanese along with
Hourman, who was also captured. The Invisible Hood was tortured constantly
and interrogated about what the source of his powers were, or any other
American secrets they thought he would know, but throughout this, he
managed to stay tight lipped.
Following his rescue The Invisible Hood returned to the United States.
There, the Invisible Hood finally revealed his identity to the nation
as Kent Thurston, a chemist. Due to the punishment inflicted on him in
Japan, Thurston went into semi-retirement and moved to Austin, Texas.
Because of this retirement, he was never a member of the All-Star
Squadron. His infrequent adventures during this era of semi-retirement are
undocumented, but it is known that he made team-ups with both Hourman and
Doll Man somewhere in this time period. It was in 1974 when Thurston
donned the Hood for a final time to battle the Mist and The Icicle. In
that battle, The Invisible Hood was killed and Kent Thurston took the
secret of his invisibility with him to his grave.
Now, 46 years after his death, a new "Invisible Justice" emerges out of
El Paso, Texas with powers and a uniform very similar to the original.
As of yet, this incarnation's relation to the original is unknown.
Powers: The only known powers of this Invisible Justice is invisibility
and to see things that are invisible. Seems to be a trained fighter as
