Powers: Salty Joe could breathe underwater and swim at remarkable speeds.
First Appearance: The Pyrite War
Notes from the Simon Tower Archive: Okay, I officially give up on these clowns and their names. “Salty Joe?” Dear God. Anyway, breathing underwater. Doesn’t sound too bad… maybe if we had him around today we wouldn’t keep hearing those rumblings from the Oceanica that they’re going to invade the surface world any day now. But look at these pictures… he may have still have a swimmer’s physique, but he had to be pushing 80 even in 1939. Whatever happened to him, he’s long gone now.
