Captain Valiant

I think this is Captain Valiant (from the cover of Variety Comics #3), but if so, he is in a new costumeReal Name: Bruce Barton

Identity/Class: Normal human

Occupation: Actor

Affiliations: Unknown

Enemies: Unknown

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Unknown - but given he's an American actor, either New York or Los Angeles seems likely

From Variety Comics #2First Appearance: Variety Comics #1 (Croyden Publishing Company/Rural Home, 1944)

Powers/Abilities: Good fighter.

History: Unknown.

Comments: Image wise, I only have access to the covers of Variety Comics #1-3. Captain Valiant is not clearly depicted on #1 (his head is obscured) or #2 (most of his body is obscured), and the hero on the third cover wears a somewhat different looking costume. At the moment, I'm assuming that the guy on Variety Comics #3 (depicted in the main picture above) is Captain Valiant in a new costume, but if anyone can either confirm or deny this, I'd love to hear from them.

CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with

Any Additions/Corrections? Please let me know.
