History: Informed by his associate John Preston that forgers were distributing counterfeit stocks, Mr. Brentwood became the Green Giant and caught the next member of the counterfeit gang who tried to pass the fakes off as the real deal. Interrogating the man then led the Green Giant to the gang's leader, Smiley Gleason, who attempted to flee the country on a ship bound for South America. The Green Giant swam after the vessel, boarded it, captured Gleason and carried him back to the USA, where he was literally dropped off at a police station.
