Number 1995: The improbable, impossible Electro Man
Red, or Electro Man if you prefer, only made three appearances, in the three issues of Rocket Comics, a very early publication of Hillman Publishing. Hillman later found success with Airboy and a small group of titles. This origin story is from Rocket Comics #1 (1940). The writer and artist are unknown. It means they got away with the crime of producing yet another improbable and impossible origin story for a comic book character, and have safely avoided the execution of public opinion (or at least those of us who read old comic books), by remaining anonymous.
