Today's featured hero in my "A 'Slight' History of Golden Age Comic Book Super Heroes" is All American (DC) 's "Dr. Mid-Nite"!
Making his first appearance in "All American Comics" #25 in 1941, and created by Charles Reizenstein and Stanley Joseph Aschmeier (how much crap did that guy get from his school-mates for THAT name?), Dr. Midnight ran right up until the end of tha comics run and as a member of the Justice Society of America in "All Star Comics" until 1952, the end of the Golden Age.
Dr.Charles McNider, skilled surgeon and general practicioner, is striken blind in...ah what the heck, here's that very origin story of how Dr. Mid-Nite began writing prescriptions against crime in a reprint from "All American" #25. Back in the early 1970's DC was big on publishing the comics as big 80 and 100 page spectaculars with the anchor story being a new feature, but the remainder being reprints from it's vast catalogue. It served as a great introduction to green horns like me to forgotten heroes. Doc Mid-Nite's reprints in giant sized "Detective Comics" was always one of my favorites and I dug his costume the most!
