Origin

The Liberator is the secret identity of Professor Nelson Drew, a chemistry teacher at Claflin University. He discovers an ancient Egyptian formula called Lamesis that temporarily transforms his body into his "ideal" form, giving him superhuman strength, speed and invunerability. He could also hold his breath for an extended length of time. Drew found the transformation to be a painful experience as it rapidly altered his muscles and bones, and the transformation would sometimes revert at the most inopportune moments.

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.
