Rand, Zenith. Zenith Rand was created by Richard Tooker and appeared in three stories in Mystery Adventure Magazine in 1936, beginning with “Zenith Rand, Planet Vigilante” (Mystery Adventure Magazine, June 1936).

In the future Zenith Rand is a two-fisted explorer, spacer, and vigilante. He is “the prince of space-men” and has “the indomitable fighting spirit that had won him the sobriquet of ‘Zenith’ from his fellows in Terra’s most adventurous legion, the space-men.” He is a 6'3" red-head who has even more luck with women, who Rand views with scorn.
