The only villain to face Doc Savage twice, John Sunlight is one of the greatest pulp villains of all time. Having escaped from the Russian authorities and their Arctic prison, Sunlight stumbled upon Doc’s Fortress of Solitude. Breaking inside, Sunlight found some of the dangerous weapons ever invented – after stealing them and hiding them in bases around the globe, Sunlight began selling the weapons to various warlords, amassing enough wealth to build upon his true scheme: to rule the world. Sunlight wanted to end world hunger, stamp out intolerance and bring about a new golden age for humanity. Of course, all of these things could only be accomplished if the world’s leaders bowed down to Sunlight. After his initial scheme was foiled, Sunlight was believed dead for a time — but in truth, he had escaped and was hiding away in a castle. Though he eventually met what appeared to be a true death, it’s possible that Sunlight could have survived to face either Doc Savage again or any hero in your own campaign. It should be noted that Sunlight had tremendous respect for Doc, offering to spare his life if he would only join him. He saw Doc as his only equal in the world and this caused him to want to sway him to his side. He also had a preference for dressing all in the same color, though it varied from day to day.
