For Those Who Came In Late

Nearly five centuries ago, during a daring raid at sea, pirates took the
life of merchant ship captain Christopher Standish, ex-cabin boy of
Christopher Columbus. In the heat of the pitched battle aboard the ship,
Standish’s son was knocked overboard to wash ashore on a remote beach
where he was found by a friendly pygmy tribe.

After stumbling upon the body of his father’s killer, young Standish
swore an oath on the murderer’s skull to devote his life, and the lives
of his sons and their sons, to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty
and injustice.

His son and grandsons did follow him for generation after generation.

To the outside world, one man, seemingly immortal, has always worn the
mask. As the legend grew, it transcended the life of any one man.

And that legend became THE PHANTOM!

In This Issue

Every son of the Phantom knows at a very young age that he will someday
take his father’s place. To this end, the young Phantom-to-be is trained
in the ways of the warrior. However, each of these sons must also become
worldly, seeking a civilized education with the family of his mother
once he comes of age. The modern Phantom spent his High School years
with his Aunt Sophie and Uncle Ephraim, attending school in Clarksville,
MO, USA . After being called home to Bangalla at the news of his
Mother’s passing, his father was brutally murdered. The killer stole the
Phantom’s gun belt, as if it were some sort of hunting trophy. And so,
his first mission as the newly ordained Phantom was to track his
Father’s killer to the ends of the Earth, regain the lost gun belt and
bring the killer to justice…
