Marvelman's origin was based strongly on that of Captain Marvel: a young reporter named Micky Moran encounters an astrophysicist who gives him his super powers, based on atomic energy. To transform into Marvelman, he has to speak the word "Kimota" (phonetically, "atomic" backwards). Marvelman was joined by Dicky Dauntless, a teenage messenger boy who became Young Marvelman on speaking the name "Marvelman", and young Johnny Bates (Kid Marvelman, whose magic word was also "Marvelman").

The character's origins were in black and white reprints of the American Captain Marvel comics by a London publisher, L. Miller & Son, Ltd. When the US publishers of Captain Marvel, Fawcett Comics, agreed to cease publication of the title after a lawsuit from DC Comics, Len Miller was faced with the supply of Captain Marvel material being cut off. He turned to a British comic writer/artist, Mick Anglo, for help, and transformed Captain Marvel to Marvelman and Captain Marvel Jr. to Young Marvelman. The changes took place with issue number 25 in each title, both cover-dated February 3rd, 1954, although they had been announced about five issues earlier.
