It’s no secret that my favorite superheroes are from the Golden Age of Comics and the pulp era that preceded it. The first (and one of the only) non-fiction piece I had published was a “hero history” of Marvel Comics’ The Invaders in the late, lamented Amazing Heroes magazine; among my favorite of the supporting characters in that series was the original Union Jack and his backstory of being part of a costumed team of adventurers during World War One.

It’s no secret that my favorite superheroes are from the Golden Age of Comics and the pulp era that preceded it. The first (and one of the only) non-fiction piece I had published was a “hero history” of Marvel Comics’ The Invaders in the late, lamented Amazing Heroes magazine; among my favorite of the supporting characters in that series was the original Union Jack and his backstory of being part of a costumed team of adventurers during World War One. So it’s really no surprise that I’d enjoy this Marvel mini-series about a group of largely non-powered costumed vigilantes active in New York City between the wars. What is surprising is that the five issue mini-series escaped my notice when it came out, and that this collected edition has sat unread on my bookshelf for over a year. I’m glad I finally decided to read it.

This is the origin story for five very different, and yet almost archtypical, “men of action.” There’s the rich playboy who dons a mask to right wrongs (The Operative), the stage magician turned adventurer (The Revenant), the mechanical genius (The Aviatrix), the disfigured do-gooder (The Surgeon), and the super-human powered by an ancient artifact (Achilles). I thought all of their origins rang true to the pulp and early comics characters of the era, calling to mind pulp greats like Doc Savage, The Shadow, The Spider, and The Avenger, as well as comic strip greats like Mandrake the Magician and The Phantom, with even a nod to Dave Stevens’ more recent creation The Rocketeer. Liss doesn’t just run the archetypes true to form, though. He mixes and matches back-stories and tropes: The Operative has a bit of Doc Savage’s childhood mixed with a bit of the Green Hornet’s modus operandi; The Aviatrix has a bit of the Rocketeer in her design but more than a touch of Dale Arden, Margo Lane and Amelia Earhart in her personality; The Surgeon owes as much to modern-era Batman as he does to the tactics of The Shadow and The Spider. Achilles is the closest to an actual super-hero, with his magical amulet and super-human strength, bridging the gap from the pulps to super-heroes.

The plot has a true pulp magazine feel to it, not just in terms of origin stories but also in the revelation of the villain and his big secret early on; the reader knows more than the heroes do. It’s tightly-paced but also takes some nice twists. Some of these are foreseeable, with plenty of clues dropped from the beginning, and some are not-so predictable and yet make perfect sense. Kudos also to the creative team for not pretending the era wasn’t all “speakeasies, dirigibles and awesome hats,” as Liss says in his author’s note. The inclusion of subplots about race and gender politics (especially in the origin of the Revenant, the character I wanted to know even more about), union-busting and the class stratification that gave people very different experiences of the Great Depression, and the tying in of at least one event of national tragedy (the Lindbergh kidnapping) added depth and realism to the story without overwhelming it.

Patrick Zircher’s art and costume design is also spot-on. All of these characters, heroes and villains alike, look like they could have appeared in the pulps and comic strips of the time; whatever grafting of modern sensibilities onto period costumes there may be is very subtle. The art is gritty and detailed enough to convey a sense of NYC in the early 30s and to fit the mood of the story.

So far as I can tell, these characters have not appeared again since this story first appeared. I can’t help but wonder what other cases Liss and Zircher would have sent these characters on had they been granted another mini-series; while all of the main plots are wrapped up neatly, there is plenty of story coda in the final pages to lead into a sequel.

[Update] Mystery Men Quotes | mystery men – POLLICELEE

[Rescuing Captain Amazing from Casanova’s weapon of mass destruction]

Captain Amazing:
Now flip the second toggle.

The Bowler:
[Having already flipped on his instructions once] … Again?

Captain Amazing:
What do you mean?

The Bowler:
Flip the toggle twice?

Captain Amazing:
No-no-no, don’t do that, just flip it again, now, one time! Flip it.

The Bowler:
[To Mr. Furious] … Does he understand what I’m asking?

Mr. Furious:
Hold on a second – Captain, exactly how many toggle flips in toto are involved in this procedure?

Captain Amazing:
[Flustered] I just – I – Seven!

Mr. Furious:
[Incredulous] Seven?!

Captain Amazing:
[A little hysterical] Flip it!!

[The weapon begins to hum omniously and increasingly loudly]

The Bowler:
Hold the phone! Everybody hold the phone. You phrased that incorrectly. We need to know how many toggle flips are needed not counting the gratuitous toggle flip you may have asked for in a moment of panic.

Captain Amazing:
[Very hysterical] FLIP IT!!!

Mr. Furious:
Okay, you know what, can we just start again? Is there like a reset button on this thing or something?

Captain Amazing:
No you little freak, there’s no button for resetting! Flip the switch, lady! Don’t look at me, lift your left arm and flip it, you moron!

The Bowler:
[Offended] Whoa! I am not a moron.

Captain Amazing:
You’re a moron! You’re a moron! Flip the switch, lady!

Mr. Furious:
[Gently rebuking] Hey, don’t call her a moron, that’s not cool…

The Bowler:
Thank you!

Blue Raj:
[Fed up] I’ll do it! I’ll do it! It’s this one, yes?

The Bowler:
No!

[Blue Raj flips the wrong switch – the weapon activates]

Captain Amazing:
Uh-oh – wrong switch.

[The weapon kills Captain Amazing in a horrific and grotesque fashion as the Mystery Men watch, appalled]

Mr. Furious:
… Everybody heard me say ‘reset button’, right?

Blue Raja:
[Horrified] Oh my God… Oh my God, we’ve killed him…

The Shoveler:
What do you mean, ‘we’? I was right here.

[The Bowler approaches Amazing’s fried, calcified and mutated corpse cautiously]

The Bowler:
I’m gonna check his pulse…

[She gently touches his wrist; it breaks off from his arm and smashes into pieces on the floor]

The Bowler:
… I don’t think he’s gonna pull through.

CLIP DESCRIPTION:
Casanova (Geoffrey Rush) has a meeting with Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) and captures him with a drugged drink.
FILM DESCRIPTION:
Can seven notsosuperheroes save a city of the future? Based on the comic book series created by Bob Burden, Mystery Men is set in the teeming metropolis of Champion City, where noble superhero Captain Amazing (Greg Kinnear) keeps the peace and sees that justice is done. When Captain Amazing mysteriously disappears, his archenemy Casanova Frankenstein (Geoffrey Rush) sees his opportunity to seize power and bend the city to his evil will, with his associate Dr. Annabel Leek (Lena Olin) at his side. However, Casanova will not succeed without a fight, as the The Mystery Men leap into action. The Mystery Men are not your ordinary Men of Steel; in fact, they’re barely superheroes at all. Mr. Furious (Ben Stiller) has one gift: throwing tantrums. Blue Raja (Hank Azaria) is a deadly hand with spoons and forks (but not knives). Shoveler (William H. Macy) can dig with superior speed and force. The Bowler (Janeane Garafalo) rolls the ball with superhuman precision. Spleen (Paul Reubens) has a gaseous problem that he’s turned into a weapon against evildoers. Invisible Boy (Kel Mitchell) is convinced he can become invisible at will, but he hasn’t actually done it yet. And The Sphinx (Wes Studi) does have an unusual power: he can cut metal objects with his mind. Aided by addled gadget master Dr. Heller (Tom Waits), the Mystery Men make their move against Casanova and Annabel, who feel just threatened enough to make things personal by kidnapping Mr. Furious’ girlfriend Monica (Claire Forlani). Mystery Men marked the feature directorial debut of Kinka Usher, who previously directed such ads as the Taco Bell talking chihuahua and the Dairy Association’s \”Got Milk?\”
