“Leaping down upon the underworld to smash gangland, comes the friend of the unfortunate, enemy of criminals, a mysterious all-powerful character. A problem to the police, but a crusader for law; in reality Dan Garrett, a rookie patrolman. Loved by everyone, but suspected by none of being The Blue Beetle. As The Blue Beetle, he hides behind a strange mask and a suit of impenetrable blue chain armor, flexible as silk but stronger than steel!”
Created in 1939, The Blue Beetle was adapted for radio in 1940. Radio and motion picture actor Frank Lovejoy was the voice of The Blue Beetle for the first 13 episodes.
