Voltereta. Voltereta appeared in the Spanish dime novel Voltereta. El Muchacho de Goma #1-5? (1935?).

Voltereta is a Spanish boy who is kidnaped from his parents’ home and made to work at a traveling circus as a performer. He is a boy of unusual flexibility and agility, so much so that he is known as the “rubber man,” and he and his best friend (a girl) travel around Europe working for the circus and fighting crime, all the while trying to get back to his parents.

Voltereta appears in stories with titles like “Better Justice.”
