Clark Savage Jr., aka The Man of Bronze, was a hero of the pulps and one of the inspirations for Superman. Created by Lester Dent, his adventures were published under the alias Kenneth Robeson. Doc was skilled in almost every human endeavor, possessed fabulous wealth, and roamed the world with his five companions fighting evil with an array of super-scientific devices. George Pal directed a movie titled Doc Savage: The Man Of Bronze starring Ron Ely.

Hero of a series of pulp magazines in the 1930s and 1940s. The "Doc Savage" pulp was first published in 1933 and introduced the "Man of Bronze" and his sidekicks: Renny Renwick, Long Tom Roberts, William Harper Littlejohn, Ham Brooks, and Monk Mayfair. Ham, a dapper attorney, and Monk, a tough, apelike chemical genius, bickered constantly but were the most popular members of Doc's colorful crimefighting crew.

Lester Dent, using the house name Kenneth Robeson, created the series and wrote most of the novels. He mixed mystery, fantasy, and humor into the monthly adventures, which set the standard for most pulp adventure fiction that followed it.
