John Law

A rising young author during the Golden Age of Heroes, John Law threw himself into his research for his next book a history of 'mystery men' titled Altered Egos by becoming a 'mystery man' himself. Arming himself with a 'web gun' and a costume with adhesive surfaces on the boots that enabled him to climb walls, Law became the Tarantula. He was a frequent ally of the JSA and a member of the All Stars.

John retired his Tarantula id shortly after the publication of Altered Egos in the 1960's. Regretfully, the book's popularity was short lived and John faded into pulp fiction obscurity. A resident of Bludhaven for a number of years, John has become quite the curmudgeon. He still writes pulp fiction novels on a old battered typewriter.
