Golden Age Heroes - Radior
Today's character is another real obscure one. Only appearing in Key Ring Comics in 1941 from Dell Publishing, the whole set of five were bound together as a two-ring binder for 10 cents. Since I've never actually read his story the only information I have on Radior is from the front of the comic, which reads, "Will one man - Radior, the X-Ray Powerman - save us from the dread force threatening to enslave our whole nation." The cover and the lightning bolt on his forehead suggests he has super powers, perhaps electronically based and perhaps some mental powers. I would love to actually read his story but I liked making the action figure. The figure itself was made from the body and legs of a Toy Biz Silver Surfer with the head and arms from a Toy Biz Captain America.
