Dan Garret was born on December 6, 1916 to Mr. and Mrs. Michael Garret and grew up to become a police officer like his father. A neighborhood pharmacist named Doctor Franz believed Garret to be a man of strong moral character and so he provided him with his two greatest inventions: a bulletproof chain-mail costume woven with a silk overlay and Vitamin 2-X which greatly increased Garret's strength and durability. Armed with these items, Garret assumed the costumed guise of the Blue Beetle. For a time in the 1940s, the Blue Beetle worked with a sidekick called Sparky.
