On the back of every Bantam published reprint of the Doc Savage novels were a few lines that answered the question, “Who is Doc Savage?”
To the world at large, Doc Savage is a strange, mysterious figure of glistening bronze skin and golden eyes.
To his amazing co-adventurers — the five greatest brains ever assembled in one group — he is a man of superhuman strength and protean genius, whose life is dedicated to the destruction of evil-doers.
To his fans he is the greatest adventure hero of all time, whose fantastic exploits are unequaled for hair-raising thrills, breathtaking escapes and bloodcurdling excitement.
That answers that. Doesn’t it?
