Blue Streak

Real Name: Jim Dare

Identity/Class: Normal human

Occupation: Circus acrobat



Known Relatives: Kitty (sister), Bobby (brother, deceased)


Base of Operations:

First Appearance: Headline Comics #13 (Prize)

Powers/Abilities: Superb athlete

History: When circus acrobat Jim Dare's brother Bobby is murdered in front of his eyes, he swears vengeance on the criminals, and adopts the superhero identity of the Blue Streak.

Comments: It's uncertain of the exact relationship between Bobby and Jim Dare - nothing is explicitly said in the appearances I've read. However Jim confirms Kitty as his sister in #15, and Bobby calls Jim by his first name as he is dying, suggesting a brother, rather than a parent (Kitty, with her surname still Dare, isn't married - this was the 1940s after all).
