History: Rex Vane was an astronomer working at an observatory in Chile until the night he was abducted by aliens from Jupiter. Taken on board their ship, he learned they were part of the Space Patrol, and was given a belt which granted him a variety of powers, which he could use for 27 days (at a time?), before it had to be returned (for recharging?). As Capitan Jupiter, he used these new abilities to fight criminals, terrorists, alien invaders and monsters.

Comments: Created by Luis Cerna in the late sixties, Capitan Jupiter had his own magazine for a number of years. Other artists who drew him included Ernesto Lopez and Lincoln Fuentes.
