Co-Created by Edmond Hamilton and Curt Swan, Ulu Vakk, also known as “Color Kid” first appeared in DC Comics Adventure Comics #342, as an alien from the planet Lupra. Once a lowly lab assistant, Ulu Vakk was struck by a cosmic beam of multicolored light transforming him into Color Kid, who has the power to alter the color of ANY object at will. With such new found powers, he thought only to help those in need and selflessly traveled to Earth and applied to be a member of the “Legion of Super-Heroes”. Abruptly being rejected, and never being one to be in a “dull” mood, he kept his head high and later joined the “Legion of Substitute Heroes”, a group of applicants rejected by the Legion of Super Heroes, for having considerably useless powers. Maybe someone, someday, will see the value in always finding that sweater you wanted in just the right color!
