History

  Circus aerialist Boston Brand was killed in the middle of his act, but granted leave to return to Earth by a being called Rama Kushna. Brand was invisible to human eyes but could take over the body of another for a short time, leaving his 'host' with no memory of what has happened. In this way, he has been able to fight against mystical threats as well as to force wrongdoers to incriminate themselves and also to have a lot more fun than he ever did while he was alive.
