Neon the Unknown
The first issue of Hit Comics featured the debut of Red Bee and Neon the Unknown among others.The comic book series had a series of other rotating cover features, including Hercules and Stormy Foster as well. Although in December 1942, the entire line-up of comics at Quality change their features with a new additional character called Kid Eternity.
The character proved to be popular enough that when Quality Comics began expanding their post-war line, the Kid got his own self-titled comic book, Kid Eternity, in the Spring of 1946. Further illustrating the popularity of the character, his antagonists, Her Highness and Silk were given their own strip in Hit Comics #29 through #57.
By the late 1940s, however, Quality Comics was experiencing the post-war bust that most superhero comics were. In November 1949, Kid Eternity's self-titled magazine was discontinued (with issue #18) and his lead slot in Hit Comics was given over to Jeb Rivers, a riverboat captain (with issue #61). The anthology title would end in July 1950.
