In PORTAL ZINE #41, Second Quarter 2002 Jose Pinto de Queiroz Filho wrote an article about the Hangman. Hangman, in Portuguese, means literally, Enforcer so he was called “O Vingador instead, (Portuguese is the language of Brazil). He first appeared in GLOBO JUVENIL MENSAL # 17. In the 1940’s the MLJ Heroes were published in “GLOBO JUVENIL MENSAL, their version of Pep Comics.

The Comet first appeared in Brazil in the pages of the GIBI MENSAL #238, September 1940.

I thank Jose Pinto de Queiroz Filho for the information and Shawn Clay of

for posting it in Portuguese on his site.
