A common trope in 1940s superhero comics is a juvenile in costume teamed up with an adult, like Batman and Robin. The older costumed character gives orders to the younger. With Crash Kid it is the other way around. Rusty Adams dresses as Crash Kid and orders around an adult taxi driver named Pook. Crash Kid not only puts on a mask and cape, but as copy boy Rusty Adams he pretends to be a reporter on The Daily Herald. As “state psychiatrist” Franz Salzmann meets Rusty, making that claim of being a reporter, Salzmann says, “You! A reporter! Must be the manpower shortage.” (The war was still on when this published.) So if an adult — one with a medical doctor degree, no less — is fooled, then Rusty’s superpower is being a persuasive, believable liar.
No lie: Crash Kid only appeared in the two issues of Cannonball Comics, both published in 1945.
Cannonball Comics was published by Rural Home, which gave its address as 420 De Soto Ave., St. Louis, Missouri. I checked, and that address was of the World Color Press, which printed comic books. The contents were done by the same people who were doing mainstream comic books like Thrilling Comics, Black Terror, Giggle Comics, etc., edited by future Herbie Popnecker creator, Richard E. Hughes.
