History: (Daring Mystery Comics #2, ga) Although he was independently wealthy, Allan Lewis still felt a sense of duty to society. At first he served this by working as a reporter for the Daily Bulletin, but after a while he decided that crime needed to be handled more directly. Arming himself with a unique gun designed by a slain inventor, he created the costumed identity of the Phantom Bullet.
Comments: Thanks to Jess Nevins for allowing me to use information from his excellent Golden Age Heroes Directory and his Guide to Golden Age Marvel Characters. Thanks also to Richard Boucher & Darrin Wiltshire @ PR-Publications for permission to use information from their equally brilliant collection of Golden Age Sites, PR Publications. Their knowledge of Golden Age characters far outstrips my own.
