Jetboy (Robert Tomlin)

Created by: Howard Waldrop

In reality, Robert Tomlin may have been short and chunky with curly brown hair. But the legendary Jetboy was a Golden Age boy wonder and ace pilot of WW2, nemesis of the dastardly Dr Tod, and star of his own million-selling comic book.

Helping design the prototype jet plane JB-1, this Audie Murphy of the skies was simply born to fly and couldn’t wait to give those pesky nazis what for. Entered the war before his voice had even broken, shot down 500 enemy aircraft, and sank over 50 ships – all while he was still in his teens. Everyone loves a hero, especially the dead ones, and despite failing to halt the spread of the Wild Card virus, his memory lives on thanks to his historic dogfight with Dr Tod above New York city in 1946.

Positive qualities – Heroic, fearless.
Negative character traits – World-weary before his time.
In a nutshell – Prodigy.
