Real Name: Craig Travers.
Identity/Class: Human transformed by magic
Occupation: School boy
Affiliations: Amazing Three, Police Inspector Burke
Known Relatives: Sue (sister, a.k.a. Tanya)
Base of Operations: U.K.
First Appearance: Jackpot (I.P.C., 1979-80)
Powers/Abilities: Blue Wizard has a magical cane, which grants him a variety of abilities, such as transforming Oakman into a butterfly, creating a floating TV screen out of thin air, checking a hoard of robot duplicates for a heart beat to identify the one living person amongst them, and so on (in Zenith we also see him cast illusions, fire energy bolts, levitate / fly, and cause a tree to grow up through an opponent.)
The Wizard flying on his platform
The Wizard was not beyond using brute force on occasion (and from the picture may well have some degree of superstrength).
The Wizard demonstrates the full destructive capability of his staff
He can survive in outer space without requiring external life support or a space suit. In the original strip he was the only member of the trio unable to fly unaided, so he transformed a shield from the local police station wall into a flying platform he would ride atop. In Zenith he flies without this.
History: Craig used the magic words "Rings of Zorr" to activate his transformations into his superhero form. He then proceeded to adventure with his two teammates as one of the Amazing Three, fighting the villainous Volger.
Comments: Created by Trevor Metcalfe.
Sue and Craig (Tanya and the Wizard) are brother and sister.
Blue Wizard appeared as a major supporting cast member in Zenith: Phase 3. After the war was won, Blue Wizard erected a monument in honour of all the fallen heroes, including his sister.
Thanks to Mike Logan for additional information, confirming the origins of the Blue Wizard's flying platform.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
anyone else who is either Blue or a Wizard
