Who is Mystery-man?

This About, Characters entry posted at 7:19 PM on June 8, 2005

An accidental infusion of djinni DNA in the 1940s granted humble William Wendell powers beyond those of mere mortals. Quickly realizing his newly acquired gifts, William became Mystery-man, one of the first costumed crime-fighters of the Golden Age of Heroes.

Throughout the years, Mystery-man adventured with several other members of the expanding "Mystery-family," including Mystery-maid, Mystery-mutt, Mystery-mite, and the villainous Mystery-master.

Mystery-man is the current foreman of UNIONS Local Chapter 37, and has been so since its inception.

Mystery-man's powers are mystical in origin. Their true capabilities have never been fully documented. However, the general public has seen him fly, display super-strength, disappear from exitless rooms, and misremember proper names on a regular basis. He is reputed to be one of the most powerful beings in the solar system.

Mystery-man first appeared in Local Heroes strip #7 (within Storyline 1 — “Enter: Squire!”).
