Concord, Gary. Gary Concord loses his parents during World War One and vows to “wipe out war.” By 1950 he has created a chemical powerful that "its very frightfulness would force man to peace." But war strikes the United States, and a bombing raid hits Concord’s lab. The scrambled chemicals put Concord into suspended animation, and he awakens in 2174 with the world still racked by war. However, thanks to the chemicals Concord now is taller than ordinary men and has super-strength, and he uses his abilities and his chemicals to enforce peace. His son continues fighting evil as Ultra-Man.
