Strange Detective Mysteries premiered in October of 1937. After two issues, it changed its title - and its focus - to Captain Satan. It featured a crime-fighting hero much in the style of Robin Hood or The Saint, who robbed from the crooks - a grim, hard vigilante of justice. By day, he was wealthy Cary Adair. By night, Captain Satan! Assisted by a dozen aides, none of whom knew the identities of the others, this scourge of the underworld brought terror to all men of evil.
Blasting his way through the underworld comes a new kind of crime-buster - Cary Adair, alias Captain Satan! A modern Robin Hood who steals from the crooked kingpins of crime, Adair and his Satan's Crew fight crime on its own bloody terms: Blow for blow and bullet for bullet!
