Colossus. Colossus was created by Herbert Macrae (Rex Cator, Devil-May-Care Dexter, Fighting Mac, Inspector Lynx, John Silence, Traka) and appeared in a number of stories in Triumph in 1934. Colossus is a Superhuman master criminal. He steals a set of experimental “radium tablets” which when ingested grant him superhuman strength and endurance. He uses these to commit a number of violent crimes and to extort and blackmail huge sums of money, before finally being captured by the clever Scotland Yard detective Tex Vickers.
