Powers and Abilities

Oracle had the ability to predict the future when he was knocked unconscious. Whenever he made his predictions, Oracle would speak them aloud, but when he became conscious again, he would not remember anything he predicted. Luckily for him, his girlfriend, Lana, would listen to his predictions. Besides his prophetic abilities, Oracle also was skilled with his fists.

  • Fighting Yank #11
  • Startling Comics #20-25, 27, 29-32, 35-40


  • 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.
