History

  As a young boy Johnny Jones was stranded on a desert island with only 734 books. For the next couple of years he absorbed all the knowledge found within the pages of the books and developed the ability to answer any question. He then burned the books to attract the attention of a passing ship and returned to civilization. Here he decided to become a a costumed hero and adopted the identity of the Answer Man, ready to answer any question for the price of ten cents.

  Jones was sometimes accompanied on his adventures by his 'sidekick' Mr. Oldster.

  Genius Jones recently showed up in the lair of the nazi Primate Patrol in the middle of the French Alps and wound up in an adventure with Doctor 13 and others.

Powers and Weapons

  Aside from his ability to answer any question Genius Jones had no superpowers. To aid him in his missions he had an advanced laboratory placed in the back of an old convertible.
