WTF is this? Jewish Zorro?
>>
>>4406719
>>4359858
The character started as a mysterious and rather sinister narrator for a radio mystery show. Audiences found this narrator interesting, and so he got developed into a actual character for print and radio. From a creative standpoint, his voice and appearance (the hook nose and the jet black slicked back widowed peak hair) gave/gives him a look atypical for a hero and played on what people considered sinister.

The character himself is a vigilante, who often also employs a network of agents. Depending on the version, the actual name of The Shadow is given as either Kent Allard or Lamont Cranston - some versions having one be his actual name and the other an alias he uses. At his basis the character is skilled at stealth, investigation and marksmanship - plus some versions give him low-key mystical abilities.

As for his religion, there is nothing which states or really suggests he is Jewish (either ethnically or practising) to the point we can say he is not Jewish. Him being Christian or atheist/agnostic makes the most sense. You could perhaps argue the versions which see him have mystical abilities lean him towards Buddhism but, you can not really call him a Buddhist.

He is one of those characters that was once highly popular and well-known (especially in his heyday of the 1930s and 1940s) though gradually fell into relative pop culture obscurity, although also never really went away as he still appeared/appears in stuff. Heavily influential upon Batman and various other characters.

batman with guns, clever tricks (and substances) to fool people into thinking he's super human, and no real moral hang ups with killing the criminals he's after. basically a more believable batman. expect any remake or reboot to completely neuter the character.

Or rather Batman was heavily inspired by The Shadow. The original pulp series is well worth reading.

This is from the 1930's, a tougher and grittier era when men were men and eschewed cosmetics and liposuction.
Gibson, one of the authors writing these stories, regularly wrote 20 books - per month. It was a very different world from our times.

Gibson originally intended that Kent Allard's face had been ruined in WW1. The eagle nose face and Lamont Cranston disguise were wax and rubber appliques just like his other disguises. The few villain's who saw under the cloak said he was nothing but bandages.

(Sam Raimi later went with that angle and made Darkman when he couldn't get the Shadow rights)

The publishers said it was too gruesome and told Gibson to drop it. A few recent runs like Shadow/Green Hornet and others from Dynamite canonized the faceless Shadow aspect though.

I really liked The Shadow movie as a kid and i still think it's a fun movie today, great cast and effects. And then i found out it was more than just a movie, but never actually read any.

Now looking at art i find it really cool that you can kinda trace his design back to the cowboy-hero/lone gunman archetype and then see how it grew into the Batman.
Very fascinating how the pulp fiction shaped modern pop-culture while almost fading itself.

Howard Chaykin set his 1987 miniseries in the present day. After he disappeared and left Margo Lane alone in 1959 (?), Kent Allard returned to Shambahalla where he stayed youthful and fathered two sons. He comes back because someone is killing his old agents. The flying car is from Shambhalla.
