Significance: First appearance of a black man as a avatar of Captain Universe. A professional cat burglar, Monty Walsh found he’d lost his reputation after doing a stint in prison. To prove he still had it, he attempted to rob the apartment of crime boss Guido Carboni, only to be caught in the act. Shot dead by Carboni’s men, Walsh was nearly dead when he was inhabited by the Uni-Power, healing his body and transforming him into the newest Captain Universe. Walsh used his newfound powers to disrupt Carboni’s crime operations, earning him praise as a great superhero. (Credit Fandom for the Write up)
