Additions:
Reared by his guardians — a living Brain, Grag the robot and Otho the android — after his parents are murdered, Curtis Newton assumed the name Captain Future to battle the evil foes who would threaten the security of the Solar System, circa 2015. His adventures appeared first in //Captain Future//, then later in //[[StartlingStories Startling Stories]]//.
**Publication range:** Winter 1940-Fall 1946>>Curtis, or Curt, Newton was born in his parents’ home on the Moon in the early 1990s. His parents, Roger and Elaine Newton, had fled there in the summer of 1990 to keep biologist Roger’s inventions from falling into the hands of Victor Corvo, who wanted to use them for evil not good. Joining the Newtons in their secret base beneath the crater Tycho was Simon Wright, the living Brain.
At Wright’s request, Roger had removed the aging, brilliant scientist’s brain before he died of illness and placed it in a serum-filled, transparent metal cube. Measuring a foot on each side, the box provided Wright with a mechanical voice, electronic ears and two photoelectric eyes on metal stalks, which he could control.
With her dying breaths, Elaine asks Wright the Brain, Grag the robot and Otho the android to rear the infant Curtis “to war always against those who would pervert science to sinister ambition.”
After years of scientific, mental and physical training, Curt takes up his mother’s challenge to “fight for the future of the whole Solar System.” Thus was born Captain Future, known variously as the “Wizard of Science” and the “Man of Tomorrow.”
~- Captain Future was modeled after [[StreetandSmith Street and Smith]]’s popular [[HeroPulpGenre hero]], [[DocSavage Doc Savage]]. In fact, the robot Grag and android Otho are synthetic counterparts to Savage’s Monk and Ham.
