In an attempt to revive readers' interest in super heroes, John Broome and Carmine Infantino introduced Captain Comet, "Tomorrow's man of destiny" in this issue. After a childhood in which he discovered he had abilities ranging from clairvoyance to telepathy, Adam Blake met the scientist Emery Zackro and learned that he was a mutant, his genome transformed by the radiation of a comet that had passed the earth at the time he was born. Professor Zackro then mentored Adam as he became the hero known as Captain Comet. With a ship and weapons courtesy of the Professor's tinkering, Captain Comet - DC's and possibly comics' first mutant hero - would go on to appear in 38 issues of Strange Adventures (until #49, dated October 1954) fighting enemies ranging from destructive aliens to homicidal flowers.
