|The way the problem was phrased seems to imply the solution.|
Finally, a prog rock superhero I can truly get behind! If Disco, Boy Detective, is at all available, these two have a battle for the ages coming up.
Doctor Synthe (The Miracle Man from Mo) actually passes for a prog rock character pretty easily, minus ab-baring spandex control top, hippie hair and six-inch demon heels. What he does have going for him is that he's a supremely powerful entity from the planet Mo who originally incarnates as a mass of undulating energy before choosing an unassuming mortal frame. Once there, he uses tremendous powers of transmutation to effect great social changes and acts of large-scale crimebusting, bringing food, wealth and safety to the people of the Earth. If there were only an evil government that wanted to outlaw rock, then we'd have a critically-celebrated concept album all wrapped up.
|"Betty, you're fat!"|
Synthe makes up for smashing Ray's only material asset in the world by, first off, adopting a less-terrifying corporeal form, saving Betty from suicide, and then basically giving the world everything it ever needed forever. He makes gold on a whim, showers Ray and Betty with material gifts, and drives around invisibly to give money to hungry, poor mothers and to shove around price-gouging shopkeepers.
|Sure, it sounds like a regular party planet.|
I'd be pretty confident in suggesting that Synthe is one of the relatively few Socialist superheroes of the Golden Age of Comics, except it pays to remember that he's a matter-transmuting superman who can turn himself into a giant, brick off Central Park in an eyeblink, and generally eat fire and shit ice from the git-go. Symbolism cracks a little when literal God is pretty much in the house.
