Comic Gallery: CRACK COMICS featuring "The Clock" (1940)

So...what made him The Clock? He was clocking villains? He got punched a lot? He was easily wound up?

Good question. Wish I had an answer. One online source calls him comics' first masked mystery man. Another says he's thought to have influenced Eisner in creating The Spirit. He was a hypnotist, and his calling card had a picture of a clock (maybe a pocket watch?) He was a former D.A. who eventually became President(!).
