Eagle. “Bill Powers, young scientist, discovers an anti-gravitation fluid which when placed on his specially designed wings enables him to fly like a bird!” Powers, a true American patriot, fights the Germans first as a spy and then wearing his flag-colored costume. He later lost the wings but could still fly via his chemical-infused suit (“strong as steel, but lighter than air”). The Eagle appears in stories with titles like “The Giant Amoeba,” “The Killers That Satan Hired,” and “The Demon of the Quicksands.”
