History[]

Turbo Jones predicted the destruction of Earth by a meteor shower in 2492 AD and constructed the spaceship Wildcat to search for a new (less doomed) home for humanity, assisted by his hand-picked team consisting of Kitten Magee, Loner and Joe Alien. Turbo himself was always accompanied by his assistant Robo, a mild-mannered cyborg chimpanzee (whom Jones habitually insulted and constantly told to "shut up", even when he was trying to be helpful; Jones could be a bit of an ass at times).

Powers and abilities[]

Being square-jawed, dashing and heroic; building spaceships; predicting meteor showers.

Notes[]

Following the cancellation of the Wildcat comic, Turbo's adventures continued, on and off, in Eagle. His last appearance was in Eagle #394. His saga was collected together by Quality in the one-shot reprint title Turbo Jones: Pathfinder in 1991, and again by Rebellion in 2018.

Trivia[]

Robo is continually referred to as a robot, but is clearly drawn as a bionic chimpanzee.
