Golden Age Origin

Mystico was a seer of ancient Egypt, who died some 3000 years ago.  His mummy was stolen from a museum by Dr. Slade, a mad scientist who resurrects him with his life-restoring "vita-ray." However, the vita-rays were turned up too high, and the machine explodes. The explosion not only destroys Slade's lab, but it also kills Dr. Slade. However, Mystico is revived and decides to fight evil in the 20th century.  He built a good relationship with US military officials.  He fought a wide variety of enemies, including the dark sorcerer Zarbu.

As a magician, his powers included warning premonitions, levitation, summoning and pretty much whatever the plot required.  His powers did have some limits, including a limited range (shorter than line of sight), and an inability to work directly on prehistoric creatures (or possibly anything of a prehistoric nature).  He was not able to fly.  Without his powers, he was a good fighter and very knowledgeable about the occult.

Copyright Note

All of Mystico's appearances in Startling Comics were renewed, which would make the character largely under copyright. However, it is unclear who currently has those rights. Given how often the character has been used since the renewal without any legal consequences, this may be a moot point.
