Minimidget. Jack Rhodes and his girlfriend Ritty have the misfortune to be the target of a Mad Scientist's shrinking ray. The pair make the best of their bad situation and use their size to fight crime, although in their first appearance they are the scientist’s assistants rather than his victims. They have no superpowers, but are smart and adventurous and make use of tiny sports cars and miniature airplanes. They fight men like the Power, a would-be world conqueror with his own island fortress. They are sent into the year 3000 by a scientist, just to see if his “time destroying machine” works. And they fight German agents trying to acquire a new “motor stopping ray.”
First Appearance: Amazing-Man Comics #5 (Centaur), Sept 1939. 23 appearances, 1939-1941. Created by John F. Kolb.
