The Obscure Adventures of Comics' Greatest Generation!
Of course not. Well, unless you count having the ability to fly while crashing through stuff head-first!
Such was the life of Jim Barr, who developed the amazing Gravity Regulator Helmet to fight crime as Bulletman! Realizing the importance of a couple having shared interests, Jim made a Gravity Regulator Helmet for his girlfriend Susan, who became his partner Bulletgirl (and later his wife). Heck, he even made a helmet for his dog (as...you guessed it...Bulletdog).
Published by Fawcett Comics, Bulletman was second only to Captain Marvel in popularity, who was even outselling Superman at one point..so obviously kids of the 1940's appreciated the intrinsic coolness of flying through stuff head-first while wearing canary yellow tights.
In Bulletman #5 (1942), Jim and Susan encountered the skeezy Dr. Riddle. Much like the the Riddler of Batman fame, Dr. Riddle enjoyed leaving cryptic riddles for victims and pursuers alike. After multiple pages of riddles, traps, narrow escapes and cat-and-mouse pursuit, Bulletman finally turned the tables on Dr. Riddle and offered him a riddle of his own...
Ahh...nothing like the smell of due process in the morning, hmm?
Note to my fellow Children of the 70's: The Golden Age Bulletman should in no way be confused with Bulletman, the Human Bullet of the G.I. Joe Super Adventure Team....despite having the same name, bright red tunic and the cool ability to fly through stuff head-first.
