Obviously, this wasn’t a real magazine. Actually, it came about when my nephew and I were talking about those old magazines like this and the heroes on them. I said, wouldn’t it be cool if one of our ancestors was one of these “supermen” and voila! Here he is. Hiram Lincoln Close: Adventurer!
BTW, he got his “gold” hand when his original hand was removed by a Chinese dragon right before he killed the beast that was terrorizing a small village. As payment, they replaced it with a hand imbued with Mandarin magic!
