“From their respective ‘classic’ runs, to the ‘modern’ interpretations,
the Gold Key characters—Solar and Magnus in particular—have
endured and remained fan-favorites to this day. And I’m one of
those fans,” said Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. “We
look forward to offering the first-ever statues, busts, and

ABOUT MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER:
Magnus, Robot Fighter debuted in February 1963 from an initial
concept by Gold Key Comics editor Chase Craig and fleshed
out by cartoonist Russ Manning. Like a Tarzan of the future, Magnus was
from human society by Robot 1A. Physically perfect and
expertly trained in martial arts, capable of taking on a steel-plated robot
bare hands, Magnus’ mission is to save the world from over-dependence
on robots—particularly those that have inexplicably turned evil.
ABOUT SOLAR, MAN OF ATOM:
Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom, who debuted October 1962,
is a different kind of superhero. Developing broad, energy-related
powers from a nuclear accident, Dr. Solar is a brilliant scientist
who fights crime in a crimson suit with a radiation symbol boldly emblazoned
on his chest.
