Not exactly. Solomon Kane is the creation of Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan. He's a Puritan soldier for hire in the 17th century. Howard actually created Kane in the 1920's before he did Conan. I'm actually convinced that, in a way, Solomon Kane is the originator of sinister, or sinister-like, characters like The Shadow, The Phantom, Batman, The Punisher, Judge Dredd, and ofcourse, Conan. He was the first sworn enemy of evildoers and was very dark. He particularly fought alot of pirates, just like The Phantom.
