Manic Monday--Captain Triumph

Caleb recently wrote about some Golden Age heroes who need to be revived, and I've covered that idea a few times, myself. Well, what about Captain Triumph?!?

Greatest. Concept. Ever.I mean, c'mon--look at that!! What a concept!! Magic birthmarks? Ghost twins?!? Invincible super powers?!? How can it go wrong??

Absorbed when DC acquired Quality Comics, Captain Triumph has had a handful of appearances in modern DC (including a Grant Morrison Animal Man), but now's the time to bring him back full time!

Bonus #1: A Golden Age reference to threesomes:

What does that caption even mean?!?!Bonus #2: Logic at its finest:

uhhh...the gold store??With a crack support staff like this, it's a mystery why Captain Triumph never made the leap to the Silver Age...

Panels from Crack Comics (seriously) #42 (1946), as reprinted in 100-Page Super Spectacular #18 (1973)
