His name means ADVENTURE--He's HAZZARD!

An interesting combination of elements from pulp characters: wealthy globe-trotting adventurer with team of aides (Doc Savage or Avenger), training in parapsychic abilities (Green Lama or Shadow) and tendency to kill opponents (Shadow or Spider), Hazzard (he doesn't have a first name as far as I can tell) can also communicate telepathically with his men and senses danger with a forerunner of Spider-Sense!
He faced the Python Men in the Lost City, and...well, that's it!
He only made one appearance!
There was no second issue!
Pity, since he had a lot of potential.
At least he left behind a cool cover, which we've digitally-restored and remastered onto a plethora of products including shirts, mugs, etc. at Capt Hazzard: Adventurer for those with an Indiana Jones/high adventure leaning!
(Actually, much like Alex Ross has done with old comics characters in Project SuperPowers, noted writer Ron Fortier is reviving the Capt Hazzard pulp series, both with a rewritten version of the original novel "Python Men of the Lost City" and a series of new novels.)
Google for the books, and visit Ron's Capt Hazzard product site at Team Hazzard.

The cover offers a clue, but the story within holds the secret!

LOST Mystery Tales #40: He's on an AIRPLANE!

From the cover of the Mystery Tales #40 comic book John Locke didn't choose: a close-up of the item in a fabric pocket on the wall just below the window between his fingers and the round green caption!
Even though the coloring makes it look like a label, it's actually a booklet or brochure with **** Airlines written on it!
