The Inspectre -SPSOA by mattcrap The Inspectre -SPSOA by mattcrap
1920's super hero team- The Super Powered Society Of America


The Inspectre: Ghost with the most

I realized there's quite a few old characters that I might've drawn and posted randomly online without ever really revealing any of their backstory.

This is the Inspectre within his first human host, Steve Harlow. Steve was a down-on-his-luck security guard with a bit of a gambling problem that helped out his drinking problem.

Unlike the pesent day Inspectre, who has developed the ability to remain solid and be seen and heard by the living, back in the 1920's he was forced to possess someone in order to interact with the physical world. Over the years he had come into contact with unique people who could see and hear him without any arcane assistance. He found that these unique individuals could also give themselves over to him and through possession grant him access to the physical world while still being able to apply his ghostly abilities to his host. The hist would take on some of the ghost's featureless characteristics and most prominently his giant glowing eyes.

Any ghost dapper enough to smoke a pipe is okay in my book.

Awesome looking character, Matt.

If the last few years have taught us anything, it's that anything's possible...

i'm in the middle of brainstorming a little ditty for him to quell all the requests that I'm getting for The Super Powered Society Of America. I can't really do anything with the whole team, but I can definitely pull out an INSPECTRE yarn.

I'm gonna give you a gander when it's done to see if one of those "anything's possible" can come true.

I echo *Gaston25's cooments.

What an excellent iconic design and a name that is genius in its simplicity and slight camp.
