My theory: He is Paul Revere, reborn. The real Night Rider, masquerading as a comic genius, from silversmith to silver spoon. Look at the pictures and tell me what you think...
= Coincidence? (My Dad always told me those don't exist...)
= Plastic surgery? (Hmmmm...)
= Revere's long lost doppelgänger?
= The product of top secret government experiments to re-animate heroes of our nation's past gone horribly, horribly wrong?
You decide. My mind's made up.
