The Blue Beetle is Dan Garrett, a rookie patrolman. Who, after being shot, was given a mysterious vitamin 2X that gave him the strength of 10 men. And, by wearing bullet proof blue chain mail, transformed himself into the mysterious Blue Beetle, a daring crusader for law. After his father was killed by a gangsters bullet, young Dan Garret joined the New York Police Department, but soon tired of the slow pace and red tape of police work. With the help of his friend and mentor, pharmacist and drugstore proprietor Dr. Franz, Dan acquired a strange mask and suit of impenetrable blue chain armour which was flexible as silk but stronger than steel, and began a second life, fighting crime as The Blue Beetle. His calling card was a small beetleshaped marker that he left in conspicuous places to alert criminals to his presence, using their fear of his crime fighting reputation as a weapon against them. The Blue Beetle was created by Charles Nicholas. The character made his first appearance in August of 1939 in the comic book Mystery Men 1, published by Fox Features Syndicate. The Blue Beetle Radio Serial aired from 051540 to 091340 as a CBS. 30 minutes, syndicated series. Actor Frank Lovejoy provided the voice of the Blue Beetle for the first thirteen episodes. Later episodes were uncredited.
