Dr. Marc Vanel is the son of a scientist & a beautiful exotic spy. A polymath & engineer, he is gifted with prodigious strength & intelligence & trained by the Brahmins of India. When Vanel acquires the power of invisibility, he becomes Homo-Deus, invisible but for his emerald green eyes, haunting the dreams of evil men & lovely women alike.
A ground-breaking novel which combines biomedical and superhero speculative fiction. It is a milestone in the evolution of the superhero, dealing with its fundamental problem: to what extent a person who can act with total impunity is likely to admit any constraints stemming from morality?
The volume includes the sequel, Kill the Old, Enjoy! ( aka Tuez les Vieux! Jouir 1925 ), a brutal but honest look at the moral disintegration of society after World War I.
