History

This version of Dan Dare is the title character of his own strip in 2000 AD. Injured in a reactor explosion, the redoubtable space hero was awoken from suspended animation decades into his own future and given cosmetic surgery to restore his damaged face, leaving him looking literally like a new man. Dare was subsequently placed in charge of a group of tough spacers on a mission to explore the so-called 'Lost Worlds'. Along the way he teamed up with a Martian called Monday and fought the evil Biogs, their ruler the Mother Biog and their servants the Shepherds.

After Dare's crew were wiped out and his Space Fortress destroyed, he went on to work on a spaceship under the incompetent Captain O'Grady, where he befriended a doglike alien, Rok. Dare's new ally helped him to defeat his oldest foe, the Mekon, and his minions, the Skash and The Two of Verath.

Despite this temporary victory, Dare eventually found himself under the mental domination of the Mekon. Breaking free, Dare acquired the powerful artifact known as Eternicus, the Cosmic Claw (which he wore as a gauntlet) and challenged the Mekon. However, the Mekon framed him, and Dare had to go on the run from the galactic authorities. His strip ended before he could prove his innocence.
