“Gentleman Jim” Craddock was a notorious highwayman and robber who terrorised the good citizens of England. He journeyed to the U.S in the late 1800’s where he encountered the gunslingers Nighthawk and Cinnamon in the American West. The hotheaded Nighthawk captured the criminal and ended his life with a noose and gallows, but Craddock transcended death as a surprisingly cultured phantom.
The Gentleman Ghost would henceforth wander the Earth until the spirit of his killer moved onto the next plane of existence. Unfortunately for Craddock, Nighthawk and Cinnamon were reborn incarnations of Egyptian royals Prince Khufu and Chay-Ara, and thus their souls could not truly die. Both were eventually reincarnated as Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and the Gentleman Ghost became their recurring nemesis.
