Gentleman Ghost is the spirit of a 19th Century gentleman thief named Jim Craddock returned to commit further crimes. Craddock was lynched by the gunslinger Nighthawk and doomed to wander undead until his killer's spirit left the mortal plane; because Nighthawk is a reincarnation of Khufu, this is impossible and the vigilante's soul would later be reborn as Hawkman. He has been a member of the Injustice Society, the Secret Society of Super-Villains and the Suicide Squad Black.

Gentleman Ghost was created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert, first appearing in Flash Comics #88 (1947).
