Blast From the Past

The 12 year old version of me apparently thought that there was such a thing as "Heat Radiation" and "Freeze Radiation." Not to mention "Force Radiation" or whatever it was called, that could knock people down. Hmmmm.

It was kind of cool, though, that the character idea I submitted was made a villain. His diabolical plan was to blow the ozone layer wide open, flooding the Earth with, you guessed it, radiation, making him all-powerful. Or something like that.

And it would have worked, too, if it hadn't been for those damned Dial H for Hero kids. Well, the boy in particular, who just happened to transform into a Hindu god who could do anything imaginable. Seems like cheating, to me.


  1. I never knew such a comic existed. I knew about Dial H, of course, but not that they took suggestions for characters. Superb.

  2. Yeah, that was great at the time. I still remember sitting at the kitchen table drawing the character, coloring him, and labeling his chest beam (each of the four colors fired a different radiation power).

    Ah, good times.

    Even if The Radiator is a horrible name. Sounds like he should be shoved under the hood of a car.
