Jonathan Bates is the orphaned child of deceased Air Force personnel, and like Mike Moran, he was used by The Spookshow as a test subject in Project Zarathustra. In 1954 he was given the ability to change places in space and time with a superpowered cellular replicate, Kid Miracleman, through the use of the magic word, “Miracleman.” As with Mike Moran/Miracleman, all of Johnny Bates/Kid Miracleman’s thoughts and memories are shared between the two bodies, while the body occupying infra-space has no consciousness and did not age.[citation needed]
