Golden Age Origin Edit

Dr. Hugo Strange is a brilliant scientist who developed a serum called Alosun, a "distillate of sun atoms" in order to "defeat crime." He spent many years developing it before he decided to field-test it in his first appearance, when he faced off against the Faceless Phantom. Ingestion of this serum gives him superhuman strength, the ability to fly, and invulnerability. Doc Strange was assisted by his sidekick, Mike, and his fiance, Virginia Thompson.

Doc Strange didn't have a secret identity and he was usually recognized on the streets of his native city. The city's mayor occasionally contacted him to request assistance in some case that was beyond the capacities of mundane law enforcement. However, he wasn't as widely known in greater United States, which allowed him and Mike to travel incognito on several occasions.
