Strange Adventures Vol.1 #208


Sometime before his murder, Boston Brand had a brief association with an arrogant trapeze artist / acrobat called Eagle, who had initially been hired by Lorna to help hype their show in St. Louis. But during the rehearsals, Eagle's attempted murder of Brand caused a terrible fight between the two aerialists. Eagle was kicked off the show by Brand. Eagle swore to get revenge on Brand. Now, Deadman thinks that Eagle could be his killer. Much to his chagrin, Deadman discovers that Lorna has hired Eagle as the circus's new aerialist. When Eagle puts the moves on Lorna, Deadman inhabits Tiny's body and knocks Eagle down. A remark Eagle then makes about Brand being dead, just as he had warned him, leads Deadman to believe that Eagle is truly his killer.
