The Spooky Space Kook was the disguise of Henry Bascombe.

Physical appearance

It appeared to be a ghostly apparition of a humanoid male. More in depth, it had a skull with huge, dull, pale yellow eyes, inside of a blue spacesuit.

Powers and abilities

The Spooky Space Kook left glowing footprints and fingerprints that dissipate after an undetermined time. This was later revealed to be due to rubber gloves and boots dipped in phosphorous.


It tried to scare off snoopers with its high-pitched laugh.
