Cartoons Comics & Toons


E-Man is a comic book superhero created for a short-lived Charlton Comics series in 1973. He has since become a cult-classic sporaadically revived up by various independent comics publishers.
Created by Charlton writer Nicola Cuti and artist Joe Staton, the character premiered in E-Man #1, the first of ten issues (Oct. 1973 - Sept. 1975). For the last four, Staton did painted covers, a comics rarity at time. An additional E-Man story, which introduced his energy-being "sister", Vamfire, appeared in the company's in-house fan magazine, Charlton Bullseye #4.
E-Man is a sentient packet of energy thrown off by a nova. Traveling the galaxy he learned about life, how to duplicate the appearance of life, and good and evil. Reaching Earth, he met exotic dancer/grad student Katrinka Colchnzski, a.k.a. Nova Kane, and formed himself into a superhero he called E-Man, with a civilian identity he self-mockingly dubbed "Alec Tronn". Nova would later be caught in a nuclear explosion and gain the same powers as E-Man and become his partner. The stories were humorous and lighthearted, in the style of Plastic Man, especially as E-Man could form himself into anything he wanted.
Backup features were Cuti and Tom Sutton's "The Knight", starring a superspy agent of C.H.E.S.S.; Joe Gill and Steve Ditko's "Liberty Belle"; two stories of writer-artist Ditko's fascinatingly bizarre, superhero Objectivism tract, "Killjoy"; the time-traveling "Travis", by Cuti and Wayne Howard; and, in the color-comics debut of John Byrne, four stories of "Rog-2000", written by Cuti and starring a wiseacre, cigar-smoking robot Byrne had created in his fan-artist days.
