Penniless Palmer is a perpetually impoverished young detective.

Palmer is a very good detective who runs a small office with his capable sarcastic secretary Bunny, and combative assistant Oxie. Palmer is unfortunately very bad at money management so even when they have clients who pay them, in money rather than favors or worthless trinkets, it tends to be used up for rent, or going to charities to which it had already been promised, instantly.


  • This version of Penniless Palmer, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
