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!

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…
