Dyna-Mite. Dan Dunbar is a high school student who is working on chemistry experiments with his chemistry teacher, Thomas "Tex" Thomas, who is also a friend. They discover that they've been absorbing the chemicals and that when they come into contact with each other they create a big explosion which leaves them charged for a time with super-speed, strength, and invulnerability. They decide to put these powers to use as Dyna-Mite and TNT. Most of their opponents are ordinary, but they do confront a Mad Scientist as well as the evil clown the Crime Clown. They appear in stories with titles like “Case of the Poison Parrot,” “Mystery of the Mother Goose Mob,” and “Case of the Missing Memory.”
