HistoryShiner was the leader of the "Chip-Ite" faction in the Whizzer and Chips comic, and featured on the front cover of the Chips insert throughout the title's run (except in the first issue, in which this position was held by Sid's Snake). He was a little boy who was an amateur boxer. One way or another, though he hadn't a malicious bone in his body, he always seemed to end up with a black eye, to which he would frequently hold a slice of raw steak — much to the annoyance of his nagging Mum! Shiner, who had an ongoing friendly rivalry with his "Whizz-Kid" counterpart Sid, was also the host of the Chips insert's letters page.
Powers and abilities
Strength levelJuvenile human male.
The frequently repeated periorbital trauma can't be doing his eye much good.
Shiner usually wore a blue and black (or sometimes red and black) striped jersey and black shorts.
Shiner's Mum (who originally had a large role in the strip) was pretty much identical to Mrs. Bumpkin of the Bumpkin Billionaires from Whoopee!, probably because the two strips had the same artist, Mike Lacey.
