Original Publisher

Bob Oksner


The Solanoids were inhabitants of the planet Mercury who practiced a Sun centric religion. The Sun King,leader of the Solanoids, wishes to prevent the Sun from one day dying. He decided that all the other planets in the solar system must be used to re-fuel the sun. So, the Sun King had his scientists create a tractor beam that would pull the other planets out of orbit and into the sun. Their plan is stopped by the timely action of Lance Lewis.

Powers and Technology

The Solanoids possessed the ability to communicate telepathically. They also had force field generators and plasma cannons. The Solanoids however do not have interplanetary ships since they have no desire to leave the planet so close to the star they worship.

Golden Age Appearances

  • Startling Comics #47


  • 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.
