Adam Blake is DC Comics’ first mutant, a man who is born 100,000 before his time and thus is further along in humanity’s evolution. He has extreme smarts, reflexes, no muscle fatigue, ESP, and telekinesis, the ability to control matter with his mind. He takes on the mantle of Captain Comet to fight science fiction menaces.
Captain Comet was created by editor Julius Schwartz, writer John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino. He was one of the few superheroes created in the early 1950s, during what I’m calling the “Early Silver Age” of Comics Books. He debuted in Strange Adventures #9 (April 1950).
In later years, Captain Comet would join the cast of L.E.G.I.O.N. during the 1980s/90s.
