Fly-Man. Clip Foster is a heavyweight boxer who is shrunk to the size of a fly by his father, an inventor and scientist. Before the process is reversed, gangsters enter the lab and kill Clip’s father. They also knock over acid, which burns and disfigures Clip’s face. He swears revenge and designs a costume for himself that includes working wings. Fly-Man has the strength of a full-grown boxer but is only the size of a fly; his costume allows him to fly, and he carries a rope weapon that works as a slingshot, garrote, and rappel.
