Origin

Bill Foster was a young American scientist who invented Mekano, a giant humanoid robot. Bill meant for Mekano to be remote-controlled and not a bit sentient, but he developed some rudimentary sentience anyway. Bill was assisted by Tommy Clark, a teenage boy who approached Bill after hearing about Mekano's impending unveiling and offered his help. Sandra Kent, an investigative reporter for the Tribune, was the closest thing he had to a potential love interest.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Wonder Comics #1

Notes

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
