The Other / Golden Boy


The Other was once Golden Boy, a super-hero on a parallel Earth that was conquered by Wampus and transformed by the Great Mind. His secret identity was that of Jean Vlad, a reported for the Paris-based magazine L'Univers. The Other was sent to our Earth by the Great Mind to follow Wampus, for the purpose of spreading chaos. Soon after his arrival, he met his predestined enemy, the Jean Vlad from our Earth, chosen by the Great Mind's opposite cosmic force, the Universality. With our Vlad in pursuit, the Other wrecked havoc in Europe and America. After several dimensional jumps, including one during which our Vlad visited the Other-Earth, the Other and Vlad met in final battle under Ayers Rock in Australia. There, our Vlad killed the Other in single, hand-to-hand combat. Jean Vlad was first confined into an asylum, then returned to Paris but was killed by the Great Mind's disciples, Virgin and Sinner.

On the parallel earth of URTH, the "Other" has remined Golden Boy, and become a member of the superhero group known as the Lightning Lords. Golden Boy helped Tanka and Arianrod fight the threat of the Pentacle.
