During World War II there was quite rightly a fear of espionage. Spies and spy rings made regular appearances in comic books, normally being smashed to oblivion by a superhero. After the end of the war and the defeat of fascism it looked as if there was no further mileage left for spies. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

Very soon a new ideological enemy appeared on the horizon. Communism, and its home the Soviet Union were perceived as the new threat to the American way of life. The foremost proponent of this was Senator Joseph McCarthy. Soon, 'McCarthyism' was sweeping the States. There appeared to be a red under every bed.

The anti-communist fear increased with the founding of the People's Republic of China and the Chinese intervention in the Korean War. This paranoia provided a fertile ground for comic book creators, as can be evidenced by the titles beneath.

As a parting note, one interesting character in the spy genre is T-Man. A U.S. Treasury agent seems to be a rather unlikely occupation for a comic book hero, but he proved to be remarkably popular.
