Not transing though, born that way……

Created by American Lee Falk in 1936, The Phantom focuses on the 21st in a line of masked crime-fighters who use strength and intelligence to defeat foes – until the inevitable day that a foe comes out on top, and the title is given up to an heir.
For years, readers have speculated over what would happen when the main hero of the comic eventually dies. Would his daughter Heloise, or twin brother Kit take over?
It looks like fans in Sweden are about to get an answer to the big question. The Scandinavian nation, which has written its own timeline of the comic since the 1960s, has now started to produce editions set in the future, covering the events after the 21st Phantom’s disappearance.

The people behind the Swedish comic have now hinted heavily that Heloise will emerge victorious in the battle to become the 22nd Phantom.
