Blue Beetle (Dan Garrett)

Dan Garret or Dan Garrett is a fictional superhero, appearing in American comic books published by multiple companies, including Fox Comics, Charlton Comics, DC Comics. Garret was created by Charles Nicholas Wojtkoski, made his first appearance in Fox's Mystery Men Comics #1 during the Golden Age of Comic Books. Garrett is the first character to become the superhero Blue Beetle, predating Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes; the character first appeared by Fox Comics in August 1939 issue of Mystery Men Comics with art by Charles Nicholas Wojtkoski, though the Grand Comics Database tentatively credits Will Eisner as the scripter. Blue Beetle has starred in a comic book series, comic strip and radio serial, but like most Golden Age of Comic Books superheroes, fell into obscurity in the 1950s; the comic book series saw a number of anomalies in publication: 19 issues, #12 through #30, were published through Holyoke Publishing. In the mid-1950s, Fox Comics sold Blue Beetle's rights to Charlton Comics. Charlton published a few sporadic adventures of the Golden Age character before revamping the hero in 1964.

Charlton tried three times to use the character to carry a self-titled series. Two of the attempts retained the numbering of a previous title, were replaced with new titles that carried on the numbering; the new series was short-lived. Dan Garret was a son of a police officer killed by a criminal; this Fox Feature Syndicate version of the character debuted in Mystery Men Comics #1 and began appearing in his own 60-issue series shortly thereafter. Fox Feature Syndicate sponsored a "Blue Beetle Day" at the 1939 New York World's Fair on August 7, 1940, beginning at 10:30 a.m. and including 300 children in relay-race finals at the Field of Special Events, following preliminaries in New York City parks. The race was broadcast over radio station WMCA. Rookie patrolman Dan Garret fought crime as the Blue Beetle without the benefit of superhuman abilities. Garret donned a bulletproof blue costume and temporarily gained superhuman strength and stamina by ingesting the mysterious "Vitamin 2X". Like the Green Hornet, the Blue Beetle would use his signature scarab symbol to bedevil criminals, leaving it to be found, hanging it down into a room on a string and projecting its enlarged image onto a wall with a flashlight.

The supporting cast remained stable throughout this original run and included Joan Mason, a beautiful blond reporter for the Daily Blade who would star in her own backup stories, Mike Mannigan, Dan's stereotypical Irish partner on the force who believed despite all evidence to the contrary that the Blue Beetle was a criminal and was always trying to arrest him with little success. Dr. Franz, a local pharmacist and inventor of the bulletproof suit and 2X formula, played a large role in the early issues but faded from the cast; the Beetle had a short-lived spunky kid sidekick in the form of Sparkington J. Northrup, who wore an abbreviated version of the Beetle's costume but went into action wearing his regular clothes. During World War II, Garret became a government agent, sent overseas on secret missions, but after peace was declared he returned to his former role of neighborhood cop; the Blue Beetle's powers increased over time giving him the ability to fly and X-ray vision among other bizarre powers that changed from issue to issue at the whim of the writers.

However, when superheroes fell out of vogue in the late 1940s, Fox started to downplay his superhero powers and they were removed. His adventures turned darker, full of sadistic violence and scantily-clad women until he was relegated to hosting true crime stories before the character went on hiatus. A popular character in his era, the Blue Beetle had his own short-lived comic strip, drawn by a pseudonymous Jack Kirby and others, a radio serial that ran for 48 thirteen-minute episodes. Charlton Comics obtained the rights to the Blue Beetle and reprinted some stories in its anthology titles and in a four-issue Blue Beetle reprint series numbered 18–21. In 1964, during the Silver Age of comics, Charlton revised the character for a new Blue Beetle series. Charlton's new Blue Beetle retained the original's name, but no powers and back story, making him a different character; this Beetle was archaeologist Dan Garrett, who obtained a number of superhuman powers from a mystical scarab he found during a dig in Egypt, where it had been used to imprison an evil mummified Pharaoh.

He would transform into the Blue Beetle by saying the words "Kaji Dha!" This version, by writer Joe Gill and artist Tony Tallarico, was played at least for camp, with stories like "The Giant Mummy Who was Not Dead". The Charlton Dan Garrett version of the Blue Beetle ran only until 1966 before his replacement debuted. Both Blue Beetles reappeared in the third issue of Americomics, a title published by AC Comics in 1983/1984. In the first story in this issue, Ted Kord fought a bogus Dan Garrett, but the second story was more significant, it revealed that the original 1940s Dan was reincarnated as the Silver Age version by some unspecified "gods"
