History: After running away from an orphanage, Rueben Rueben hide in an old castle, only to discover it was his ancestral home. The castle ghosts, his ancestors (all named Rueben Rueben like him), wanted to help him, so each endowed him with the power they were famous for - one gave strength, another wisdom, yet another speed and another courage. To call on their powers, he merely needed to call out "Hey Rube" to be transformed into the adult hero Red Rube. In his civilian identity Rueben went on to become a Daily Sun cub reporter.
