Captain Zero. Captain Zero was created by “G.T. Fleming-Roberts,” the pseudonym of George Thomas Roberts (Black Hood, Diamondstone, Ghost (I), Jeffrey Wren), and appeared in Captain Zero #1-3 (1949-1950).

Captain Zero is a Superhuman. Captain Zero is regarded as the last of the classic pulp heroes. Captain Zero is Lee Allyn, a newspaper copy writer who automatically (and involuntarily) turns invisible every night, from midnight to dawn. Allyn uses this ability to fight crime, although he is short (only 5'4"), slight, and has bad eyesight. Allyn is in love with reporter Doro Kelly, but she is attracted only to Captain Zero.
