Karate Kid

Val Armorr, an orphan from 30th century Tokyo, is an expert on all types of martial arts and the various sciences of hand-to-hand combat. Taking the name Karate Kid, Val is inducted into the Legion of Super-Heroes after a try-out where he not only shows his power by slicing through metal beams, but, ultimately, by challenging Superboy himself. Using uncanny quickness and weight-shifting, Karate Kid is able to evade attacks and throw the Boy of Steel into a wall with tremendous force. Even after Val is eventually defeated, Superboy, deeply impressed what the applicant can do to him with skill alone, says, "anyone who can give me that kind of a tussle belongs in the Legion!" (Adv No. 346, Jul 1966: "One of Us is a Traitor!").
