Pre-teen Tommy Rodgers decided to wear a costume and fight crime as Little Boy Blue when he overheard his father, District Attorney Dan Rogers, talking about how hard it would be to bring in a mobster named Wolf Lupo, with the star witness missing. He got the idea from reading about Wildcat
, who was starting his superhero career who got his idea from Green Lantern
. He became the first third-generation superhero. Being a kid, Tommy was in the unusual position of being able to have a kid sidekick his own age. In fact, he had two. On his way to Lupo's lair, he picked up his friend, Tubby; and once there, a third, a wrong-side-of-the-tracks type named Toughy, joined in. After rescuing the witness (whom Lupo was holding prisoner), they decided to continue superheroing as Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys
. They wore similar blue costumes, except for Tommy's red hood and boots. Some point later, he and his Blue Boys acquired a female teammate who called herself Little Miss Redhead
Years later Tommy retires from superheroing, gets married and has a child of his own. His son finds his father's old costume, along with a diary to explain their significance. He got together with Tubby and Toughy's sons when Dr. Light
looks for ever-less formidable foes to challenge (only to continue being a loser and a joke). Dr. Light was defeated by the new Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys.
