Golden Age Origin

Telo was a hero that helped to stop a fantastic Prussian plot to invade the United States by shooting troops across the Atlantic Ocean in giant "capsules" from a big gun, the troops landed in Lonepine Valley, 50 miles north of Denver. He did this by reading the mind of a beautiful but dangerous female Prussan Spy and discovering the plan. After the plot was stopped with the aid of the U.S military, Telo took the agent back to his headquarters, suggesting that she may have been intended as a recurring character and possible love interest.
