Biography

Working in the research laboratories of the United Nations Interplanetary Division, Jim Logan discovers an amazing secret. He treats himself electronically and thereafter, whenever he shouts the word 'GALAP', electronic impulses from outer space vibrate through him, endowing him with superhuman powers. He becomes Captain Universe, the Super Marvel!

"GALAP " stands for

  • G alileo, Master of the Galaxies,
  • A rchimedes, Master of Physics,
  • L eonardo da Vinci, Master of Invention,
  • A ristotle, Master of Philosophy, and
  • P ythagoras, Master of Geometry. 

OBSERVATION

Captain Universe, Jim Logan, says to Vull that his brother is James "Jet-Ace" Logan. Jet-Ace Logan is the ace interplanetary pilot of the RAF, who is accompanied by his regular copilot, Plum-Duff (sometimes Plumduff) Charteris.

In Black Dossier a newspaper Allan is reading says Jet-Ace Logan is part of the 1958 Space Program with Dan Dare and Jet Morgan.

Interestingly both brothers, Captain Universe and Jet-Ace Logan, have the same first name "James",  which is a similar situation to Professor Moriarty and his brother Colonel Moriarty.

    SPECULATION

    In LoEG:Volume III -1910 Captain Universe says  “Vull, I’m sorry about how The Seven Stars worked out after our one and only victory against the ‘Mass. I told my brother Jet about it, and he was apalled. That thing might once have been one of his colleagues.

    Jet-Ace Logan is part of the British Space Program, which also includes the British Experimental Rocket Group led by Professor Bernard Quatermass, so the two would have been colleagues, so it is possible that Quatermass is the 'Mass. 

    In terms on continuity, if you just look at the BBC serials for Quatermass, they were 1953-1959 and another one in 1979. So Quatermass could have been transformed after 1959 into the 'Mass, and defeated (but not killed) by the Seven Stars, and at some later time cured in time for the 1979 serial.
