Zardi the Eternal Man

"Nogi, bring coffee."
~ Zardi the Eternal Man

Real Name:  Prince Zardi of Zandipore 
First Appearance: Amazing-Man Comics # 11 (April 1940)
Publisher:  Centaur Comics
Zardi the Eternal Man was originally a Prince of Zandipore and was 10,000-15,000 years old.  As "master of all magic and the wisdom of the centuries", Zardi traveled with his faithful companion Nogi and uphold justice.  He had a magical cape that granted him youth as well as a magic spell-casting cane and medallion.   Zardi had many "helpers" whom he could contact through crystal balls.  These helpers appeared to be people whom Zardi had assisted in the past.  In addition to his magical abilities, Zardi was a formidable hand-to-hand combatant.

A relentless force of good, Zardi exclaimed in Amazing-Comics #12 as he removed his cloak of youth, "I'm tired -- tired of being young.  Weary as I am, I would live another fifty centuries to see evil banished from the earth."

Zardi lived in an American hotel and appeared in Amazing-Man Comics #11-12 and #15-16.

Below is his first appearance in Amazing-Man Comics #11.
