Genius Jones (DC)
Real Name: John Jones
Search for 'Genius Jones (DC)' on Amazon

Powers:
Way ahead of his time; encyclopedic scientific mind enables him to answer any question, conduct extraordinary research and invent amazing contraptions.

Bio:
After his boat was wrecked, young Johnny Jones found himself stranded on a desert island. Hoping to attract a ship to rescue him he built an enormous fire using 734 books containing knowledge of every possible kind that he had salvaged from the wreck. Fortunately, he had first read and committed to memory every single fact the books contained during his long stay on the island. Jones's plan worked perfectly; the towering blaze was spotted by a passing ship, and he was rescued. On his return to the U.S., he decided to put his hard-won knowledge to good use. Styling himself Genius Jones, he constructed a portable laboratory in the back of an old convertible, and offered to answer any question for a dime. When costumed heroes were in vogue during World War II Jones called himself the Answer Man.
