Real Name: Tom Trevor
Identity/Class: Human technology user
Occupation: Crime fighter (private detective, dilettante, or police detective - it's unclear)
Enemies: Slick Sullivan
Known Relatives: None.
Aliases: The Bulletproof Crime Smasher
Base of Operations: U.K.
First Appearance: The Atomic Age Comic (Burns/Algar, 1947)
Powers/Abilities: The electronic jacket "radiates a form of atomic energy which deflects bullets and gives him the strength and agility of ten men." The extra strength is apparently activated by him flicking a switch, so it isn't always activated; when he strikes something with the strength enhancer on, the blow is accompanied by a flash of blue light.
History: Crime fighter Tom Trevor possesses an "electronic jacket" that makes him bulletproof and gives him enhanced physical abilities.
Comments: Created by Walter Booth. A version of Tommy, called Tommy Trident, turned up in Zenith Phase Three, and died at the hands of the Lloigor.
Many thanks to Steve Taylor for providing images of Tommy.
