The Futuremen race into the past to answer a cry for help that has traveled across a hundred million years! Follow Captain Future as the greatest enigma of all time transports him into the forgotten ages.
Most definitely science fiction space opera, the Captain Future stories go beyond that as well. A traditional Pulp hero in many ways, Captain Future also proved to be a character that readers could easily relate to. The stories are also peppered with humor, including the ongoing war of words between Otho and Grag as well as absurd encounters with strange beings.
Grag is most definitely the brawn of the Futuremen. A robot constructed by the Brain and Captain Future’s father, Grag stands over seven feet tall and may be the strongest creation in the solar system. Constructed of ‘inert’ metal, Grag is almost indestructible and powered by atomic energy. His primary job was keeping an eye on young Curt Newton and Grag still does that job unerringly even though Captain Future is now grown. Grag’s greatest desire is to be considered human, a point that Otho tends to agitate him over again and again, leading to some of the funniest moments in the stories.
Truly one of a kind, Otho is a unique android created by Captain Future’s father and the Brain. The synthetic man does not naturally resemble an Earthman, but Otho is well known for his mastery of disguise, a skill that has been useful for Captain Future on many occasions. Otho also is faster than nearly any other being alive and he is responsible for teaching Captain Future much of what he knows of speed and agility. Otho also enjoys the danger of each mission they undertake, almost as much as he likes to antagonize the humorless Grag about not being human.
