Born just as a brilliant comet flashed through the night sky, Adam Blake was destined to become a great man, his father claimed, and as the years passed, Adam began to demonstrate powers and abilities that made his father's words seem prophetic indeed. At four he could find lost objects almost effortlessly. At eight he was able to read an entire textbook in minutes, then recite it back in its entirety. In high school he could play any musical instrument flawlessly. And, of course, he excelled at any sport he tried.
Yet, despite his successes, Adam Blake was a lonely man. Determined to find out what made him different from his peers, Adam sought out Professor Emery Zackro, a prominent physicist. After much testing, Zackro discovered that Adam was a mutant, an accidental specimen of future man, born with powers and abilities that would not be common on Earth for another 100,000 years.
With Zackro's help, Adam perfected his powers and, at the elder man's suggestion, adopted a secret identity to protect himself from those who might seek to use Adam's powers to their own advantage. Since he was born beneath a passing comet, Adam took the name Captain Comet, and for the next several years he protected his homeworld selflessly.
At last, feeling out of place on a world where he was so far superior to anyone else, Adam constructed a starship call the Cometeer, and took off for the stars to find himself.
Several decades passed on Earth, while Adam, because of his mutant nature, barely seemed to age. Finally, Adam returned to Earth to discover a world much changed during his absence. Ignorant of current events, Captain Comet allowed himself to be used for a time by the Secret Society of Super-Villains, becoming their fiercest foe when he learned how he'd been duped.
Recently, Captain Comet discovered his mutant powers were latent at birth, activated only by the passing comet's unique radiation, and thus were beginning to wane. With the help of Superman, Adam restored his powers to their fullest, and now continues to fight crime on Earth, still seeking to find his true place in the world.
