Blue Beetle: Two Rackets in One

The Blue Beetle has had a long and storied history. The character was created by Charles Nicholas and debuted in the comic book “Mystery Men” in 1939. Over the decades, the Blue Beetle has had several comic publishers, including Fox, Holyoke, Charlton, and finally DC. After the Mystery Men debuted, the Beetle had a syndicated newspaper comic strip, then in 1940 he got his own radio program.

The radio program did not last too long, only 48 epidodes of 13 minute length (combined here into 24 episodes of 26 minutes.) The programs follow the adventures of Dan Garret, a policeman who finds the police bureaucracy a little to constraining. When he feels that the red tape gets in the way of justice, Dan dons the special armor created by his friend and mentor, Doctor Franz, puts on a mask and fights crime as The Blue Beetle. The actor who portrayed Dan Garrett was Frank Lovejoy.
