The Rocketeer
Real Name: Cliff Secord
Search for 'The Rocketeer' on Amazon


Bio:
The Rocketeer was a stunt pilot who discovered a mysterious jet pack that allowed him to fly. The character's adventures were set in 1938 Los Angeles and Stevens gave them a retro, nostalgic feel, influenced by, among other things, Commando Cody movie serials and pinup diva Bettie Page.

Rocketeer stories appeared in short installments from 1982 to 1995, published in Pacific, Eclipse Comics, Comico Comics and Dark Horse Comics. They gained a cult following and critical acclaim despite long stretches between story installments. Walt Disney Pictures released a film version starring Billy Campbell in the title role in 1991.

Notes:
The Rocketeer (Cliff Secord) is a fictional superhero. Created by writer/illustrator Dave Stevens, he first appeared in a back-up feature of Pacific Comics' Starslayer #2 (1982). The character is a homage to the pulp heroes of the 1930s and 1940s.

First Appearance: Starslayer (1982) #2
