Original Publisher


Created by



John Fearless VI was a Boston Brahmin who, while strolling through a cemetery in Boston, encountered the spirit of his ancestor, the first John Fearless, a soldier who fought valiantly during the American Revolution (much like Fighting Yank). The original Fearless tells his descendent that he is needed to fight Axis subversion and evil in America, not overseas, and then gives Captain Fearless a costume and a magic horn to help him. Captain Fearless has no superpowers, but his horn can summon up his ancestor for assistance.
