Captain Future Review

Captain Future is a science fiction hero—a space-traveling scientist and adventurer—originally published in a namesake pulp magazine from 1940 to 1944.
The character was created by editor Mort Weisinger and principally authored by Edmond Hamilton. There have subsequently been a number of adaptations and derivative works.
Significant was a 1978-79 Japanese anime (キャプテン・フューチャー), which was dubbed into several languages and proved very popular, particularly in Spanish, French, German, Italian and Arabic. Within the francophone countries the title is Capitaine Flam.
Although sometimes mistakenly attributed to science fiction writer Edmond Hamilton, who indeed authored most of the Captain Future stories, the character was created by Better Publications editor Mort Weisinger during the 1st World Science Fiction Convention in 1939.
The original character was published by Ned Pines' Thrilling/Standard/Better publications company. A different Captain Future was published in Pine's Nedor Comics line.
