Captain Triumph is actually identical twin brothers Lance and
Michael Gallant. The two were identical in every way, down to
the T-shaped birthmark on their wrists. But tragedy struck
when Michael was killed in an explosion.
Mourning his brother, Lance was shocked to be visited by Michael's
ghost. The ghost told him that if Lance touched the birthmark,
the two of them would merge, giving Lance super-powers. Lance
does as the spirit suggests and the two merge, giving them the power
of flight, invisibility, making them invulnerable, and giving
them super-strength. When the birthmark was touched a second time
the two split again, leaving Michael a ghost who was invisible to
all but his brother. Realizing that these powers should be used
for good, Lance donned a red t-shirt and white pants and began
to fight crime as Captain Triumph.
Captain Triumph became a member of the All-Star Squadron, the
World War II group of mystery men, brought together by Franklin
Roosevelt. Captain Triumph fought with the group for many years.
