Powers/Abilities: In his mouth Danger Man has a false tooth containing a Martian-made powder which grants temporary superhuman strength. He has access to high tech resources, such as an artificial island base and the Zoomar, a vehicle capable of travelling by land, sea or air, which was shaped somewhat like an electric razor (of the period) with a pointy nosecone on the rounded end and caterpillar tracks for landing gear.
History: Kidnapped by aliens from his home on the Yorkshire moors when he was five, the boy who would become Danger Man was taken to Mars. Many years later he was returned to Earth, charged with fostering interplanetary good will by helping anyone in danger.
Comments: Created by Michael Darling.
Danger Man was replaced in the Beano by the Danger Twins, a pair of orphans he adopted and trained as his sidekicks.
