The Human Meteor wore a "wonder belt" equipped with an "ato-motor" and powered by tiny storage batteries (see Comments); the belt enabled its wearer to fly via "radium emanations," granted its wearer superhuman strength via a "power electric energizer," and could create around its wearer a "contra-magnetic field" capable of destroying any metal weapon; wooden weapons were immune to the field's effect and could be effectively used against the Meteor. For a time, the Meteor also carried a "yar-gun" whose paralytic rays induced a sleep-like state in its subjects, a "explosatom gun" which emitted a destructive ray, and a "wrist mentalophone" with a communication range from at least the US to the Himalayas. The Human Meteor was an accomplished lassoer, pilot, stuntman, mechanic, soldier, swimmer, and hand-to-hand combatant.
The belt-generated field is vulnerable to wood.
The original Golden Age version of Duke O'Dowd - The Human Meteor - is in the public domain.
