The Phantom, sworn to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice, was created by Lee Falk in 1936. Seemingly immortal, having been around since 1536, he is in fact the 21st member of a crime-fighting dynasty who all adopt the same costumed-persona.
The Phantom lives in a jungle hideout known as Skull Cave, where all previous Phantoms are buried. Like his predecessors, he relies on his strength, intellect, and legendary immortality to overcome evil.
Featured in The Phantom, the most widely-read superhero comic in the world, the anti-crime crusader is also a star of film, television, and video games.
