Powers, Roy. Roy Powers was created by Paul Powell and appeared in the comic strip “Roy Powers, Eagle Scout” (1937-1942).

Roy Powers, "17 years old and a leader of boys," is the leader of a Boy Scout troop called the "Beaver Patrol." The only other notable character on the Beaver Patrol is "Chunky," the fat stereotype and Powers’ best friend. Powers leads the Beaver Patrol on various adventures, starting small, with the disciplining of bullies and local burglars, and ending on a larger scale, with the Beaver Patrol going to Africa on a photo safari, to the Caribbean to hunt sunken treasure, and to Egypt, where they delve in to a pyramid's mystery.
