Blue Beetle

The Blue Beetle is Dan Garrett, a rookie patrolman. Who, after being shot, was given a mysterious vitamin 2X that gave him the strength of 10 men. With the help of his friend, confidant and apothecary proprietor Dr. Franz. Dan dawns a strange mask and suit of impenetrable blue chain armor which is flexible as silk but stronger than steel. He begins a second life, fighting crime as a daring crusader for law, the mysterious Blue Beetle. His calling card is a small beetle-shaped marker that he leaves in conspicuous places to alert criminals to his presence, using their fear of his crime fighting reputation as a weapon against them.

The Blue Beetle was created by Charles Nicholas. The character made his first appearance in August of 1939 in the comic book Mystery Men #1, published by Fox Features Syndicate. The Blue Beetle Radio Serial aired from 05-15-40 to 09-13-40 as a CBS. 30 minutes, syndicated series. Actor Frank Lovejoy provided the voice of the Blue Beetle for the first thirteen episodes.
