James, Prince. Prince James was created by A.H. Johnson and appeared in “The Raid of the Mercury” (Amazing Stories, July 1931) and “The Superman” (Amazing Stories, Aug. 1931).

In the year 22,000 C.E. Prince James Lancaster is a revolutionary who captains the pirate vessel Mercury. He is the head of a noble family, one of many who make up the Plutocracy, the ruling power of the solar system. But the Plutocracy is corrupt and oppressive, and only the independent noble houses, like James’, hold back its power. In the first story James manages, temporarily, to kidnap the Plutocracy’s Vice-Pontiff, but he escapes. In the sequel James leads his men and a variety of allies in open revolt, and eventually overthrows the Plutocracy and becomes king of North America.
