Character(s): Rainbow Boy
Publication: Heroic Comics No. 19
Publication Date: July 1943
Publisher: The Eastern Color Printing Co.

   Rainbow Boy was actually Jack Walton, a member of a group of "Whiz Kids" who worked at a radio station. That isn't mentioned in this story, but I've read one other Rainbow Boy tale which revealed that.

   Rainbow Boy fights crime and espionage by creating and controlling rainbows. Here, he teams-up with Hydroman to defend the planet against an alien invasion.

   Rainbow Boy appeared in issues 14-20 of Heroic Comics. He returned for one special story in issue no. 25 -- another team-up with Hydroman!
