Doctor Charles McNider, was the earliest blind superhero, predating Marvel Comics' Daredevil by more than two decades. According to Wikipedia:
.
"One night, he was called to remove a bullet from a witness who was to testify against the mob. However, a mobster threw a grenade into the room, killing the witness and blinding McNider.

McNider thought his days as a surgeon were over until one day, as he was recovering, an owl crashed through his window (reminiscent of the incident that inspired Batman to dress as a bat). Taking off the bandages that were covering his eyes, he found that he could see, but only in perfect darkness. Using his newfound ability, he developed a special visor that let him see in light and "blackout bombs" that block out all light, and used these to fight crime.

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the one of Dr. Mid-Nite's early appearances. I hope you enjoy building him as much as I did!

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
