Tower Comics' NoMan was a 2 issue series written by Steve Skeates with artwork by Ogden Whitney, John Giunta, Gil Kane & Paul Reinman. NoMan was created by Len Brown and Wally Wood. Lightning was a back-up feature in both issues, written by Steve Skeates with artwork by Chic Stone. 

Dying scientist Anthony Dunn transfers his mind into an android body of his own design. With a wide number of these identical bodies, he can transfer his mind to any of them should something happen to the one he is in. 

As a T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agent (The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves) Dunn is given an invisibility cloak and becomes NoMan!

  1. Interesting how an invisibility cloak makes his whole body invisible even when it isn't covering much of anything.
