A former Olympics hopeful with aims to be present in London in ‘48, his career was sadly interrupted when his unit, the 366th Infantry was deemed combat ready. On the front lines Denny quickly became a legend within the segregated regimens. He was fast, strong, intelligent, and would do anything for his brothers-in-arms.
War is where Denny’s powers first manifested. When he single-handedly rescued a pair of downed British airmen from an oncoming Panzer unit, he gained international acclaim. Legend has it that he put both airmen over his shoulders and outran the Panzer tanks. That’s just legend, though… right?
Not for Denny Graves. Not only could he hoist both airmen with ease, and still outrun the tanks, he could have just as easily punched through them. He is the ultimate physical specimen.
He returned from War a modern-day Hercules. His hopes of Olympic gold waylaid, he did what he was known for: heroism. He took to the streets, protecting them. With little more than his wits, brawn and a shotgun named Rosie (as in The Riveter) which is mostly armed with various non-lethal loads.
While he is not the original Cape, he’s the best known, having been role model and hero to generations of youth.
