Captain Wonder. Professor Jordan, a patriotic chemistry teacher, discovers a "wonder fluid." He is showing this to Tim Mulrooney, one of his students, when Tim drops the vial. Tim and Professor Jordan are overwhelmed by the fumes from the wonder fluid. When they awake, they have superpowers. Professor Jordan becomes the crime- and espionage-fighting Captain Wonder. He is assisted by the similarly superpowered Tim. Captain Wonder has super-strength--the strength of a "dozen men.” He appears in “The Origin of Captain Wonder” and “The Gaze of Death.”
