Amoeba Men

Real Name


First Appearance

Mystery Comics #4 (1944)

Original Publisher


Created by



Amoeba Men were an aggressive species of amoeba-like aliens that are said to originate from Saturn and foes of Lance Lewis. The technology of their race was unique, but similar to the tech possessed by Earth at the time including laser weapons and spaceships.

Powers and Abilities

Amoeba Men had several unique powers thanks to their physiology. These included the ability to survive unaided in a vacuum, shape-shifting, mass manipulation, telepathy, being unaffected by physical blows, and the ability to swallow and digest prey with their acidic bodies. Energy weapons or attacks are effective against them however.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Mystery Comics #4


  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
