Born Wednesday, December 6, 1916, Daniel Garret was the son of a New York policeman who raised the boy by himself from age 4.  The boy wanted to be a policeman like his father, but the man urged his son to go to college first.  Michael saved money and Dan got a scholarship and went to State University where he was a stand-out boxer, football and hockey player.  During his senior year, his father was killed—shot by Chick Alonzo.  Dan later became a cop and the BLUE BEETLE in order to hunt down his father’s killer.  Created by Charles Nicholas Wojtowski in 1939 for Fox Feature Syndicate’s MYSTERY MEN COMICS #1, Dan Garret is the original BLUE BEETLE.  In 1955 Charlton bought the character and he underwent many changes (including adding an additional “t” to his name).  The Blue Beetle originally had now superpowers.  He wore chainmail armor.  He eventually worked with Dr. Franz, who supplied him with vitamin 2X, which gave Dan super strength, dexterity and invulnerability.  He also gained super healing ability and endless energy.

Today, you are challenged to draw DAN GARRET, THE ORIGINAL BLUE BEETLE for a half hour or so!
