History: Much like his friend and partner, Young Marvelman was given a magic word that allowed him to transform from a young boy into a superpowered being. In his case the magic word was "Marvelman".

Comments: "Roy" has written in to say "One of his enemies was "Young Nastyman" who wore a similar costume which was black (naturally). Unlike our hero, as I remember, Young Nastyman's powers were temporary though I can't recall what his weakness was - but there was something Young Marvelman could trick him into doing which stripped him of his powers - until the next time, that is."

Young Marvelman (now named Young Miracleman) would eventually be revived long after his partners, during the "Silver Age" run of the Eclipse Miracleman comic.
