American Comic Group's NEMESIS

NEMESIS, the American Comic Group's resident ghost, was once Steve Flint, a government detective who got run over by a train in ADVENTURES OF THE UNKNOWN #154 (Feb. 1965, pictured below), written by Shane O'Shea (Richard Hughes) and drawn by Pete Costanza.

After death, Flint’s soul went to “The Unknown,” but like the Spectre, he didn’t really die -- he returned to earth with ghostly super powers, a new uniform with a stylish hood (all the "in" dead heroes wear them), and a new name: Nemesis. Later on, Nemesis tales were drawn by former Marvel inker Chic Stone, turning in some of the best work he ever did!
