Ed's Notes: Question about the ring... Who is "the wearer" when the Ring is at "a distance?"  Also... How the fuck does "Telepathy: 8" range "ranging across half a galaxy?!" So... The ring has goofy stats. He can fly. After that... GM's discretion?

His entry treats the "Minor Psychological Instability" very specifically. After 1 day (15 AP's) of time in the Lab, he undergoes a Mental Attack of 15/15 . IF this attack earns 1 RAP or more, he becomes obsessed with the problem at hand and gains a Serious Irrational Attraction to solving the problem. Thereafter, the attack increases by 1 AP for each AP of Time that's passed. (16/16 after two days, 17/17 after four days, etc...) Once these cumulative RAP's exceed his Mind, he becomes temporarily insane. (And essentially an NPC.)

2nd Edition gives him on 80 Hero Points.

First Appearance: Action Comics #276 (May, 1961)


  1. The Flight Rings, in most sources (see LSH Sourcebook 1, for example), have Super Ventriloquism: 65 and a note that it can only broadcast a signal. Today it would be Radio Communication (Signal Only): 65.
