The jade-robed Buddhist priest who battled crime as the Green Lama is back!
Conceived in 1939 at the behest of the editors of Munsey Publications to compete with the Shadow, it was an outlandish concept. While the Shadow possessed the power to cloud men's minds after his time in the East, the Green Lama relied on other even weirder powers - including the ability to become radioactive and electrically shock opponents into submission! He carried a traditional Tibetan scarf, which he employed to bind and befuddle opponents, and possessed a knowledge of vulnerable nerve centers, which he put to good use in hand-to-hand combat.
Om mani padme hum! The Green Lama knows!
