Real Name: Anthro
Search for 'Anthro' on Amazon

Anthro is the first Cro-Magnon boy born in the Stone Age. His father, Neanderthal caveman Nee-Ahn is the chief of his tribe, his mother a captive member of another tribe. Winning two competing impetuous barefoot cave girls as his wives, Cro-Magnon women Embra and Nima, Anthro begins the human race, as Embra lives to bear his first child.

Justice League Europe Annual #2 features a version of Anthro. In an alternate time-line, an older Silver Sorceress, lost in time, is rescued from a large creature by Anthro. He exhibits great eagerness, smashing the beast long after it is subdued. A bored cave girl, seemingly either Embra or Nima, joins the Sorceress in watching Anthro's 'battle'.

After a single Showcase appearance, Anthro was given his own title, which lasted for 6 issues (1968-69). All six issues were written and drawn by Post, with Wallace Wood providing inking for the final issue. Since the cancellation of his title, he has made minor appearances, most notably in Crisis on Infinite Earths #2. Recently, Anthro appeared in the 2006 revival of Tales of the Unexpected. He is also slated to appear in the upcoming 7 issue miniseries Final Crisis by Grant Morrison and J.G. Jones.

First Appearance: Showcase (1956) #74
