Playing more catch-up on PROJECT SUPERPOWERS Golden-Age-y goodness!!
Today we've got Hydroman (known as Hydro in PS), who was featured on the cover of PROJECT SUPERPOWERS #4!
Hydroman first appeared in HEROIC COMICS #1 (Aug 1940). He was created by Bill Everett, who also created the Sub-Mariner.
Although he's referred to as "Hydro," both in the PS book and press releases, if you look closely at his logo on the cover of PROJECT SUPERPOWERS #4, you can see shapes that spell out "man" at the bottom of the "Hydro" logo.
Here's a Hydroman tale from HEROIC COMICS #19 (July 1943). At the end, he even has a special guest-star!!
Can Hydroman and Rainbow Boy save the earth from the alien invaders!!
Come back tomorrow for the pulse-pounding conclusion!!
(Because golden age comics were so...pulse-pounding...)
