Background

John O'Keefe was the best swindler, con man, and high class thief of the Seven Borroughs. It was said that he once stole a diamond necklace out of a locked glass case in front of the proprietor in the morning. Then, using the necklace, courted a debutante under the nose of her millionaire father in the afternoon. And after becoming familiar to the millionaire, he made off with a hundred thousand dollars in gold from the man's vault by midnight.

Then, things got harder. Mystery Men began sprouting up all over the place and a lot of them were do-gooders. John's crimes became stifled, and it became harder and harder to keep up his lavish life of crime. Then came the day that he was nearly captured and played the role of mouse in a cat-and-mouse chase in a mansion on Rhode Island. He temporarily evaded the hero and ended up in a storage room.

He began to feel a tug - not a physical one, but a tug nonetheless. It forced him to walk through the large room to a box, beckoning him, seeming to call out, "a man of wit and resource... I am yours..."

He pried open the small box finding within an old cloak that seemed to say to him, "wear me." So he did just as the lights came on and the Mystery Man entered the room. But somehow, John knew that he was unseen. After the hero made a search of the room and failed to find the master thief, John left, still shielded from view by the Cloak of Autolykos, son of the God of Thieves.

Personality

John is a greedy man and ambitious, at least regarding his wealth. He is cunning and will stop at nothing to acquire valuable goods, but he takes pride in the fact that he has not killed or even badly injured anyone.

Quote

"How convenient that the wealthy like to display their wealth for all to see.. and for me to take."

Powers

The Cloak of Crime's main power is the cloak which greatly increases his already high level of effectiveness as a thief and con man. He has little in the way of offensive powers to fight Mystery Men, but is highly evasive. When backed into a corner, he has enough experience with street brawling to give him a decent chance to fight his way out.

Appearance

As most of his victims are the rich, John O'Keefe is usually found wearing fashionable suits, often even tuxedos. As the Cloak of Crime, he wears a white tuxedo complemented with a gold cumberbund and his silver-colored gold-embroidered Cloak.
