Allan Lewis is a reporter for the Daily Bulletin who, although wealthy, still works as a reporter on minor stories. For no particular reason apart from a desire to stop the bad guys he puts on a costume and fights criminals the police can't or won't go after. In his one story he is given a special gun by a nameless inventor; the gun shoots "ice bullets" which melt away, leaving no evidence (hence the "phantom bullet" of the strip's title). Lewis uses the gun in the pursuit of justice.
