Captain Aero. Captain Aero is a flying ace who takes on the Japanese in the air over the Pacific and Germans in the air over Europe and the Atlantic. He is assisted by Chop Suey, and then by Bob and Jimmy Blair, the Sky Scouts. Aero is a good pilot and fighter, but has no superpowers. He fights Yellow Perils like the Tibetan Black Lama, evil German pilots like the Black Baron, and death-ray-wielding Mad Scientists. His adventures occasionally verge on the extraordinary, as when he discovers an artificial island with a German airbase on it. He appears in stories with titles like “The Mystery of the Incendiary Bomb,” “Japanese Sandman,” and “The Pilot Who Looked Like Death.”
First Appearance: Captain Aero #1 (Temerson/Helnit/Continental), Dec 1941. 47 appearances, 1941-1946. Created by Allen Ulmer and Ray Willner.
