Wentley, John. John Wentley was created by John Westerman and appeared in John Wentley Takes Charge (1938), John Wentley Investigates (1939), and John Wentley Wins Through (1940).

John Wentley is an aviator hero, working as a mail delivery pilot and finding adventure wherever he goes. He fights thieves, crooked politicians, and even a criminal conspiracy called the "Hovering Eagle." John's brother is the eccentric scientist Bill Wentley, whose secret inventions are capable of providing "unlimited power" and knocking airplanes out of the sky, and John's sidekick is George Teuter. While John is not particularly wealthy, George is a man of independent means, something that comes in handy on more than one occasion. John is brave, determined, and a whiz at disguise.
