Dan Garret is the first Blue Beetle during the Golden Age. He was a vigilante who got powers using Vitamin 2X, and fought crime with a sidekick named Sparky. Charlton Comics reimagined him as Dan Garrett in the Silver Age. He is portrayed as an archaeologist who gains powers from a Blue Beetle Scarab found in Egypt. His student and successor is Ted Kord, although Jaime Reyes is the next to use the Scarab. Dan Garrett was created by Will Eisner and Charles Nicholas, first appearing in the Fox publication Mystery Men Comics #1. (1939)
