The Smasher (sometimes just 'Smasher') was a small boy who had an unfortunate habit of destroying things, more often than not by accident (though he could also be deliberately destructive on occasion).He almost always wore a red and black diamond-patterned jumper or shirt, giving him a vaguely similar appearance to Dennis the Menace.
Powers and abilities
Juvenile human male.
Hugh Morren drew the strip from 1958 to 1984, when it was taken over by Dave Gudgeon until 1986. Brian Walker then took over and carried on drawing the strip (through several partial revamps) until it became intermittent and then finally vanished when the Dandy was relaunched in 2004. Lew Stringer has since revived the character in the 2013 and 2014 Dandy Annuals.
The Smasher's hair was originally red, but was changed quite early on to being black for no readily apparent reason (apart from making him look more like Dennis, of course).
