History: "The story of a young man, who was favoured by the gods to combat the forces of evil." An old man observes Dave Terry saving a cat from the jaws of a stray dog, and approaches him afterwards, saying "You are the man I have been looking for, a man with goodness in his heart and the courage to pit his strength against the forces of evil."
He takes Dave through clouds of swirling vapour to the home of the gods (the Greek ones by the looks of them), "where he is given great powers to aid him in his fight against evil". They give him a clasp to wear around his throat, embossed with a lightning flash, as a symbol of their power, and send him home to battle evil.
Comments: Created by Ron Embleton.
To gain superpowers some of us have to be the last survivors of an exploding planet, some have to survive being close to an exploding atomic bomb, and some have to save a cat from a yappy dog...
