STEEL CHAMELEON

STEEL CHAMELEON

Created by Richard Comely, this character whose regular name is Edward D. Holman, a Vietnam War veteran, test pilot and freelance undercover agent who is a master of disguise. His face bears a metal plate on half his forehead and a vertical scar running down from his right eye.

After a highly unlikely opening, the story settles down to a rescue mission. General Noda who Holman encountered first in Vietnam, has kidnapped Dr. Bradford in order to steel cruise missiles from the U.S. The doctor’s daughter seeks Holman’s help to rescue her father which he does. Then using clever disguises he escapes himself.

Mark Shainblum and Gabrielle Morrissette utilized “The Steel Chameleon” as a supporting character in their “Northguard” series. See NORTHGUARD.
