Butch Brogan was a relatively content hobo that lived in the 1940s. One day, while resting in a city dump, he came across a discarded book of Shakespearean plays. In reading them, he soon became enamored with the works of William Shakespeare, particularly Hamlet. While the other hobos panned his obsession, Brogan decided to take his inspiration and help others.

When Mrs. Upsnood's precious pet dog was kidnapped by two thugs looking for easy money, the theft was witnessed by Borgan. He promised the wealthy woman that he would rescue her stolen dog. Borrowing a motorcycle, Brogan chased the crooks to their hideout where he knocked one out and reclaimed the stolen dog. With the other thief attempting to flee on the motorcycle, Brogan chased after him in the crook's car and forced him off the road. There, Brogan easily knocked the man out and returned the purloined pooch back to its owner. Mrs. Upsnood thanked Brogan with a check for an undisclosed amount and a kiss on the cheek.[1]

Brogan's subsequent activities and fate are unrecorded.



Butch Brogan should not be confused with a similar 1940s crime fighter known as the Vagabond who was in reality a police officer who disguised himself as a well spoken homeless man.
