Early Life and Education

He is often seen with Herman Feldman and Great Gazoo, two innocent hound dogs from Brooklyn that act as his companions. With density powers enabling him to resist most physical damage – even shattering steel beams with his hands! Additionally he uses his telepathic abilities to influence people under his control; once using them against a pool shark who looked similar to Minnesota Fats from The Hustler movie!
Kirby, though self-taught, performed extensive research into newspaper art and cartoonists such as Milton Caniff, Hal Foster and Alex Raymond – his primary inspirations.
