Occupation: Botanist

Affiliations: None.

Enemies: Doctor Vulpex

Known Relatives: None.

History: A bespectacled botanist named Albert Oates had discovered a wonder-herb which could transform him into a super-athlete. Doctor Vulpex, a sinister foreigner, found out about his discovery and attempted to steal it for his own evil purposes.

Comments: Especially considering the era that Oates first appeared in, the writers of this strip must have been sailing somewhat close to the wind by having a hero who gained superpowers by inhaling the smoke from an unnamed plant.
