Downstairs, Martin Crane's elevator has three walls on it. Upstairs, it is a simple platform. We know it's supposed to be the same elevator because his chair is the center of it, but it doesn't match. See more »
Perplexing? It is never revealed how the Masked Marvel acquired his aura.
He doesn't possess magical powers, super brains, or any particular crime fighting skills. He does sport a mask. But what for? What's he trying to hide? He's truly not much, if all, different from the other three good guys.
One thing is clear. Men's hats must have been surgically attached. No amount of fighting, falling, leaping out of cars or boats, can dislodge the hats.
It appeared all of the serials many pugilists were in tremendous physical condition. How many blows to the chin, back flips, kicks, hurling into walls could you take? They are simply indefatigible.
The Masked Marvel serial makes Steven Segal foes seem like pre-schoolers.
