The Fountain of Youth is a legendary spring that reputedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks of its waters. Its location is a matter of conjecture.


History

The Fountain of Youth is a legendary spring that reputedly restores the youth of anyone who drinks of its waters. Its location is a matter of conjecture.

Earth-One

Florida is often said to be its location, and stories of the Fountain are some of the most persistent associated with the state. However, Rex the Wonder Dog and Bobo the Detective Chimp reportedly found the Fountain in Bimini.[1] Bimini is the westernmost district of the Bahamas, composed of a chain of islands located about 53 miles (81 km) due east of Miami, Florida. Bimini is the closest point in the Bahamas to the mainland United States and approximately 137 miles (209 km) west-northwest of Nassau.

Earth-Two

Another report places the Fountain in a valley, accessible via a door, in a castle, in the Florida Everglades, where it was found in the late 1940s by Batman and Robin.[2]

Another report places the Fountain in the Red City, a lost Incan outpost in South America, where in the late 1930s, the magician Zatara led an expedition to discover it, financed by Millionaire Jeb Standish. Zatara received a strong premonition of evil from the Fountain, as his assistant Tong gathered some of its water. On their return to America, they learned that Standish had died at the same time Tong was collecting the water.[3]

It was not widely known, on Earth-Two, that the Fountain of Youth was on Paradise Island.[4]

Earth-S

Another report places the Fountain in the Brazilian rain forest, where it was found in 1940 by American reporter Scoop Smith. Shortly after being discovered, for no apparent reason, this Fountain simply dried up.[5]

New Earth

The Fountain of Youth was reportedly boiled away by the Spectre.[citation needed]

Residents

Rex the Wonder Dog drank from it, as has Detective Chimp. [6]

Notes

  • There were two issues of Whiz Comics #3, one with a cover date of March 1940 and the other dated April 1940. Scoop Smith's discovery is reported in the latter of these two publications.
