"Am I the hero of Rann, dreaming he is an old man on Earth? Or is it the other way around?"
~ Adam Strange
I'm Adam Strange. Mild-mannered archaeologist on Earth... and on the planet Rann, not to sound arrogant, but... I'm a friggin' superhero!
~ Prime-Earth Adam Strange.

Adam Strange is a science fiction superhero published by DC Comics. Created by editor Julius Schwartz with a costume designed by Murphy Anderson, he first appeared in Showcase #17 (November 1958).

In May 2011, Adam Strange placed 97th on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time.

Bio

Adam used to be an archaeologist before he was accidentally teleported away from a dig site on Earth to another galaxy. There, he found himself on the planet called Rann, and the tech that had transported him was called Zeta Beam. A Rannian scientist explained to Adam that he needed his help in protecting the planet. Though initially bewildered, Adam happily obliged as he found the adventure and made his life goal as the savior of the Rannian people as well as the galaxy.

Powers

Adam is quite skilled with hand-to-hand combat. Likewise, he is good at tracking his enemies to their particular location. Adam has good marksmanship, as he handles the blast guns quite well. He used to have the ability to teleport and manipulate all forms of energy before he was depowered.
