-  * The Clock meets a mystery-woman ​called ​**[[Orchid (Earth-X)|the Orchid]]**, who typically wears all-purple, all-red, or all-green suits and is the only daughter of a wealthy father. ["​Baffled by a Flower,"​ Detective Picture Stories #2 (January, 1937)]+  * The Clock meets a mystery-woman ​calling herself ​**[[Orchid (Earth-X)|the Orchid]]**, who typically wears all-green, all-purple, or all-red outfits ​and is the only daughter of a wealthy father. In their first meeting, the mystery-woman guesses that a disguised man on the bus is really the Clock, based on the fact that he's wearing a blond wig but has dark hair beneath it; leaving him a note to meet the Orchid at a restaurant called the Hotspot that afternoon, she vanishes and returns home to tell her father about it. That afternoon, the Orchid meets with the Clock, still in his disguise, and explains that she wants him to secure records from her father'​s crooked former business partner, which are guarded by henchmen. The Clock refuses an offer of payment, so the Orchid accuses him of being a coward and plans to secure the records herself. That night, she is caught by one of the guards and attacked when she defends herself, only being rescued just in time by the Clock, who arrives and fights off three guards. The Clock cracks open the safe and tells the Orchid to take whatever she wants, after he has secretly stolen a stack of securities he plans to give to needy families, then binds the guards and calls Capt. Kane of the NYPD to pick them up. The Orchid vanishes, leaving behind a note of apology and a hope that she'll meet him again someday. Despite himself, the Clock finds her quite intriguing.
