History: A criminal on his homeworld of Zorr, the villainous Vogler was sentenced to exile on an uninhabited world, but the ship transporting him was knocked off course towards Earth. Monitoring his journey from the other side of the Galaxy, Zorrian scientists observed three young Earthlings, twins Sue and Craig Travers and their friend Sam Pacey, close to where Vogler had crashlanded. Judging them ill-equipped to fight Vogler, the scientists decided to give them extra powers. Within moments the power transfer was complete, and seconds later the children found themselves encircled by rings of light, while an image of the chief scientist informed them to "just call on the Rings of Zorr whenever you need super powers to fight for good against evil." When Sue queried "Rings of Zorr?" a pink comet of pure energy hurtled through the blue rings and the trio were transformed into the Amazing Three: Oakman, Blue Wizard and Tanya.
The group battled Vogler on multiple occasions, only sometimes capturing him but always defeating his schemes. They constructed a satellite base to operate from.
Comments: Created by Trevor Metcalfe.
The Amazing Three's strip appeared in Jackpot from #23 through to issue #59 (5th July 1980), as well as some Jackpot Annuals and Holiday Specials.
All three appeared as major supporting cast members in Zenith: Phase 3. Tanya was a casualty of the war against the Lliogor, being decapitated by a particularly vicious blow to the head. After the battle was won, Blue Wizard erected a monument in honour of all the fallen heroes, including his sister.
