TNT. Thomas "Tex" Thomas is a high school chemistry teacher who works on chemistry experiments with his friend and student, Dan Dunbar. 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 TNT and Dyna Mite. Most of their opponents are ordinary, but they do confront 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.”
