Dell Comics published five issues of Brain Boy from 1962-1963. Brain Boy has a super brain that gives him control over other people and the power of flight, among other things. You’d think he would set about ruling the world, getting mega-rich, and having a harem of scantily clad hotties rubbing him down with chocolate sauce. But no, he becomes a kind of secret agent. Whatever!

Issue #6 was our favorite Brain Boy story for obvious reasons: He meets a giant dinosaur who reveals that Tyrannosaurs ruled the planet using super-intelligent telepathic control over other animals. Now, they’ve come back to life to reclaim the planet! Of course, atomic power is involved, just like with Godzilla or Reptilicus.
