Golden Age Origin

Cal Martin, an inventor and adventurer, created a "three-cartridge rocket pack." He also created one for his fiancée, Doris Dalton. Together they fight crime and the Nazis as Rocket Man and Rocketgirl. They had no powers but could fly with the help of their jetpacks. Their enemies included Killer Craci, the Purple Peril, Mr. Death.

Notes

  • Although many sites claim that Rocket Boy was a sidekick to Rocket Man and Rocketgirl (and even that Rocket Boy received his jetpack from Rocket Man), Rocket Boy and Rocket Man were never shown on panel together or even appeared in the same story.
  • Rocket Man's superhero identity would switch back and forth from Rocket Man to Rocket-Man to Rocketman however, both his first and last appearances had him solidly as Rocket Man. Alternatively, Rocketgirl was always one word and Rocket Boy was always two.
  • When reprinted by St. John Publications, Rocket Man was renamed as Zip-Jet and Rocketgirl was never given a code-name other than being referred to as the "Zip-Jet Doll" by some thugs. Their costumes were colored differently and their names were changed to "Tech" Carson and Pat Dale.
  • When re-printed by Bell Features, Rocket Man was renamed Jetman but, Rocketgirl was never given a name.
