Captain Comet was an African-American college student in Chicago who gained his powers from a freak accident when being struck by fragments of a glowing comet. He was among the many superheroes to publicly appear shortly after the debut of the first superhero, The Atom. When Czechoslovakia was invaded by the Soviet Union in 1968 and The Atom refused to get involved, Captain Comet entered the conflict and it ultimately cost him his life.
