20th Century

The state of Massachusetts was visited in 1943 by the youthful hero Secret Stamp in his civilian guise of Roddy Colt. While visiting Minute Men Country, Colt discovered the Griffin Gang operating in the area and apprehended them as the Secret Stamp[1]. In 1945, a group of pirates were robbing fishermen off the coast of Cape Cod, but were ultimately stopped by the Sub-Mariner[2].
