    By 1939, Richard Wentworth had been operating as the Spider for nearly six harrowing years. He had been through everything a good pulp hero could expect to face. Malevolent master villains. Sinister Asian world conquerors. Mad scientists more diabolical than anything conceived before that point. And of course since the Spider was a wanted criminal, endless police officials, uniformed cops, homicide detectives and other officers of the law had been pursuing him with single-minded fervor.

    Strange Detective Mysteries premiered in October of 1937. After two issues, it changed its title - and its focus - to Captain Satan. It featured a crime-fighting hero much in the style of Robin Hood or The Saint, who robbed from the crooks - a grim, hard vigilante of justice. By day, he was wealthy Cary Adair. By night, Captain Satan! Assisted by a dozen aides, none of whom knew the identities of the others, this scourge of the underworld brought terror to all men of evil.

    Captain Zero premiered in November 1949, and had the dubious distinction of being the last of the single-character hero pulps. Captain Zero was a fabulous character whose strange and deadly career began each midnight at the stroke of twelve - and ended each gray dawn with the first rays of the sun. During those few hours, he became completely invisible! But even that wonderous feat wasn't enough to save the pulp magazine. It ended after only three issues.

    The Captain Future stories were not only populated with magnificent characters, but they were also set in a wild, imaginative, almost psychedelic universe. Edmond Hamilton built worlds and star systems that in many ways completely disregarded what the public knew to be true about outer space, but they did not care. Nearly every planet in our solar system could support life, and danger lurked there, too. Although the original stories took place amongst familiar planets, Hamilton would take fans far beyond anything familiar in later tales.
