The Adventures of Captain Cosmos was a science fiction television program, radio serial, and comic book by Hubris Comics. It aired in the Capital area prior to the time of the Great War. The serial also had a crossover with the Silver Shroud.[1]

Characters

Comic books

  • Captain Cosmos: The Radioactive Space-Men from Space!
  • Captain Cosmos: Vs. the Moon-Men! (September 2077)

Notes

  • In select boxes of Sugar Bombs, there was a free Captain Cosmos decoder ring.
  • In Mothership Zeta, Sally mentions that the command bridge looks exactly like that of the one in Captain Cosmos.
  • Captain Cosmos was the best selling Halloween costume prior to the Great War.[5]
  • There is Captain Cosmos themed wallpaper within Shaun's room.

Appearances

Captain Cosmos and his show appear on various posters and loading screens in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76.

Behind the scenes

The show aired at 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays (a reference to the original series of Star Trek, which aired in the same time-slot during its first two seasons).

On the Hubris Comics receptionist terminal, under the 'release schedule' section, it says that the comic 'Captain Cosmos: Truth, justice and the Space-American way' is due for release in June. This is a reference to Superman's famous catchphrase; "Truth, justice and the American way."

The inclusion of the monkey, while a reference to the wacky plot lines of 50's TV, is most likely a homage to the first mammals in space (Albert and Albert II), also monkeys.
