Happy Birthday, Color Kid!

According to the 1976 DC Calendar, today will be the birthday of Ulu Vakk, better known throughout the galaxy as Color Kid.
Color Kid joined the Legion of Substitute Heroes at about the same time as Dream Girl and Star Boy, but stayed much longer with the group than either of those Legionnaires. He served with the Subs with distinction until Polar Boy disbanded the group. 
Color Kid is a Sagittarius. He trusts himself to react appropriately...not perfectly, but appropriately. That's real confidence, and it's what will attract someone special to him tonight.
Color Kid made his debut in ADVENTURE COMICS #342


  1. No mention of Ulu's two greatest moments as a Sub? First, changing the Green Kryptonite cloud around Earth to Blue K in Adventure #351 (yet another display of Really Bad Future Science). And of course getting gender-swapped into Color Queen in the Subs one-shot.

  2. Color Kid saved the world!
    Also made a damn fine guerilla commando during tge T&M years.
    Also he was the othe Subs member who joined the Legion when the two groups merged in the Adult Legion story.
    And, according to hiw Who's Who in the Legion, works with Fire Lad to create hand-blown artisanal glass.
    Not enough appreciation for him out there.
