Here's a character I was introduced to in the 80's when Eclipse brought him back and really dug.

Airboy not only battles traditional Super-villains but also oppressive governments and evil corruption. He travels all over the world in his plane and fights evil on multiple continents.

@payno: now those are some killer flight duds, great job on the layered armor look. If they ever make a cartoon of him this is exactly the look to go with :)

I decided to go the steampunk route with this one, always felt this character would fit well in that kind of world.

Caught in a freak thunderstorm, 14 year old David Nelson II's body was transformed. He found he could now "merge" with the air, and discovered he could render his body invisible as well as anything he touched. He also discovered he could phase through solid matter as well as any energy forms and could fly via air currents. Additionally, he could manifest and project air pressure "bolts" to cause severe damage to most anything.
