Here's a simple little puzzle.
With the help of the image below, can you figure out who I am?
Look carefully at the second "term". What could possibly be the word i'm looking for?
what does the --- say?

OK, here's my best guess.
The picture of the raised fist with the medal represents
VICTORY (the 7 letter dashes underneath the picture).
The 1 in the corner of that represents
the first letter of that, i.e. V
The letters on the right hand side of the + sign represent
Based on the second hint we are actually looking for
Adding these together, we get the left hand picture with 2 in the top right representing
V + OWL = VOWEL, so there will be two vowels in the answer
Then the right hand picture with the whole lot crossed out and 16 in the top right represents
16 NOT-VOWELS, i.e. CONSONANTS.
So we are looking for a person whose name
is made up of 2 vowels and 16 consonants.
Right now I can't think of anyone fitting this pattern, but I will come back and edit this later if an answer occurs to me.
OK, thanks to Hexomino who dragged me bodily across the finish line, we now know the first image represents
not two vowels but the second vowel, E
and the second image represents
not sixteen consonants but the 16th consonant, T
Putting these together we get
E.T. (the Extra-Terrestrial) who was definitely an "odd stranger in town" per the puzzle title.
Vicky has done 99% of the work here so should get the credit for the answer but what I think we are really looking for is
The 2nd vowel ("vowl") and the 16th consonant ("not vowl") which are, respectively E and T,
so the answer is probably E.T. (which fits with the title "Odd Stranger in Town")
