At long last, the Red Bee can lay down his weary burden -we have a new contender for the title of Worst Superhero Ever. The Vagabond made his debut in U.S.A. Comics #2, and like most Golden age characters had only the most rudimentary of origins. With a big crime wave sweeping the city, crusading officer Murphy was called in to help:
“I need a disguise that will strike terror into criminal hearts! I shall become a creature of the night! I shall become...a comical, roly-poly cartoon hobo!!”
It takes a whole lotta suck to give both superheroes and hobos a bad name, but the Vagabond had all that suck…and more.
