First Appearance: Protectors #1 (Malibu, September 1992)


History: "Richard is the product of Philip Reinhart's -- the original Night Mask -- brief and volatile marriage to the former Erika Blaine. At the age of 3, he became the object of a bitter and highly publicized custody battle following the divorce of his parents. Richard attended several universities without earning a degree, then spent several years drifting around Europe. Having grown up with his mother, his relationship with his father is strained. Upon learning of the formation of the Protectors, Richard petitioned President O'Brien for a place on the roster. He donned a new costume, but adapted [sic] the same name as that used by his father when he was a masked crimefighter 50 years ago." - Protectors Handbook

Comments: Originally intended to be called Masked Marvel, like the Golden Age character he was based on, Malibu renamed him because Marvel Comics was then publishing a title starring Speedball, who was also often called the Masked Marvel.
