Golden Age Origin

Dr. Electra was a scientific genius who had become a prominent crime boss through the creation of his deadly "atom ray." After becoming seemingly untouchable, his criminal empire was finally threatened when a reporter witnessed him murdering a small-time bookie.

Ironically, Electra's efforts to silence the reporter brought him into direct conflict with the super-heroine Nelvana, who killed the super-criminal by redirecting an atom ray blast back into Electra's face.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Triumph Comics #31

Notes

  • Dr. Electra's first and only appearance (Nelvana of the Northern Lights Meets Her Match) also marks the first and only time Nelvana creator Adrian Dingle did not write the story. Instead, writing duties were covered by Canadian pulp fiction writer John Hollis Mason.
