HistoryEdit

Quote1 Suppose that handful of Marines on Wake Island felt the same way you do -- They'd have been licked in no time. But together they were a match for any amount of Japs that came at them -- What do you say, Bill ?? Quote2
-- the Ghost of Flanders src 

Supposedly dead in the Battle of Marne, in the First World War, "Rip" Graves operated in the Second World War as a masked superhero from a crypt beneath the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He secretly and single-handedly excavated and built this sub-crypt base. The Ghost of Flanders used a red poppy as his trademark, commemorating the Second Battle of Ypres, on Flanders Fields.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Abilities

ParaphernaliaEdit


Transportation

  • Plane: He flew an armed biplane, seemingly of WWI vintage.

Weapons

  • Bayonet: He wielded a vintage WWI bayonet, which he was able to throw with incredible accuracy.

NotesEdit

The Battle of Marne took place from 5–12 September 1914, which was two and a half years before the United States entered the First World War. The chronicles are unclear as to the details of Graves' participation in that action.
