The Shadow knows!. Peter Melonas Peter Melonas
   
As depicted in the pulps, The Shadow wore a wide-brimmed black hat and a black, crimson-lined cloak with an upturned collar over a standard black business suit. He decides he can best aid the police and his city by operating outside the law. 'Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows! 'He is invisible when he operates as a vigilante, a feature born out of necessity. The Shadow's best known alter ego is Lamont Cranston, a «wealthy young man-about-town. » In the pulps, Cranston is a separate character, a rich playboy who travels the world while The Shadow uses his identity and resources in New York (The Shadow Laughs, 1931). As the vigilante called The Shadow, Cranston hunts down and often violently confronts criminals, armed with Colt. 45 Pistols and sometimes using magician tricks to convince his prey that he's supernatural.
