Crosley Bing Mary Marvel.png
Crooner trying out on radio station WHIZ in "The Swooning Crooners" story of comic book Mary Marvel #3 (July 1946).

He's suddenly unable to sing, thanks to a choking gas capsule hidden in his microphone. Turns out it's a plot by opera singer Signore Carnato who hates crooners and swing music.

His name is a combination of real singer Bing Crosby and Crosley, a popular brand of radio at the time.
