Hi reader! Welcome back to "Deadman Goes To The Movies." I'm your host, Boston Brand, aka Deadman. As a murdered man who was granted the power to possess people to find my own killer, I'm UNIQUE! A real one of a kind. BUT -- did you know I have an identical twin brother?

That's my twin brother. His name isn't Cleveland Cleveland, it's just Cleveland. I don't know why I said it twice.

Anyway, get it? I'm Boston, he's Cleveland. It's where our parents were from or something. Anyway, there have been a few times when I had to possess my brother Cleve, for his own good. Like the time he got trapped in a lion cage...

My training my not have saved Cleve, but it did improve his chances!

What got me thinking about my twin brother, Cleveland? Well, I recently saw a movie called WONDER MAN (1945) starring Danny Kaye as a nightclub performer. In a dual role, Kaye ALSO plays the nightclub performer's twin brother!

Believe it or not, the nightclub performer gets murdered, and comes back as a ghost to possess his twin brother! Exactly like I've done to my bro Cleveland several times. Here's the whole movie in a 90-second clip...
Those are some pretty stange adventures, huh? It's almost like WONDER MAN inspired the story of my life... uhh, I mean my DEATH! But of course, I can't sing, dance, and clown around like Danny Kaye. Who can?

I have to admit that Cleve isn't the only one I've possessed just for fun. Sometimes, I possess other superheroes and make them do stuff. One time, I entered Aquaman's body so Batman and I could raise hell in Atlantis. But naturally Batman ruined my little joke...

Now excuse me, movie fan, I have to go. I have a date! Over the years, I've found that possessing my twin brother Cleve's body is good for all SORTS of things...
