Flag. Jim is found as an infant on the doorstep of John Courtney, a crippled war veteran and flag maker. John discovers that Jim has an American flag birthmark, and on his 21st birthday Jim is told by the ghosts of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln that he has "the speed of the wind and the strength of a 100 men," invulnerability to all weapons, and the ability to fly. (He also leaves a star-spangled trail behind him when he runs). Jim uses these powers to fight enemies of America, whether domestic (crooked businessmen who seek to control the country) or foreign (Germans and Japanese).
