Vartox! What a character! Even if he had a bizarre look, he was a nice guy... I love that Maggin/Bates trilogy where he is possessed by an alien entity which kidnaps Lana. On eof my favorite stories of the early '80s.

Captain Strong was great, too. In 1987 he was replaced by Bibbo.

The Bronze Age Superman had a great supporting cast: Josh Coyle, the Marygold twins, Steve Lombard... But when times change, only the classic characters survive. Jimmy, Lana, Lois and Perry will always stay where they are, the other are always replaced. The post-Crisis supporting cast is now almost vanished, too.

There was a guy who posted on Usenet a bit and maintained a WWW page about Vartox but has since taken it down for some reason.  Here's a fractured archive (could've sworn he had a lot more):

It might be worthwhile for the Powers That Be who run this place to ping him for his Vartox material.
