On the parallel universe, known as Earth-Two, when John Sargent was still a child, he came into possession of the mystic Ruby of Life[1] which would allow him to control anything he touches.

Taking his professional name from the ancient king of the same name, Sargon has had a checkered career, acting mostly as a hero, along with his sidekick/manager Maximillian O'Leary. Together they battled crooks, spies and his azure-skinned archenemy the Blue Lama, Queen of Black Magic.

  1. Over seven thousand years ago, Nommo, the immortal ruler of a destroyed civilization grew lonely. He created several artifacts of power, one of which was called the Ruby of Life. Nommo hoped that through the generations, the owners of these gems might evolve into beings capable of interbreeding with a species of homosapiens that utilized magic and would then be his new subjects. Over the millennia, the Ruby of Life was broken into several smaller pieces, one of which was discovered by an archaeologist in Egypt. Giving it to his wife, she wore it as a pendant. It was the first thing that their newborn child, John, saw and touched. Bonding with him in that manner allowed John to tap into the mystical energies controlled by the Ruby.
