Sky Hero!

So, apparently someone at Marx noted that they had this glider toy in production, and figured a good way to sell it would be to license super-heroes to print on them. What wasn't noted was whether or not the heroes chosen actually had the power of flight! So, while the Superman Sky Heroes toy was appropriate, they also did Batman, Spider-Man.... and Captain America.

Now, off the top of my head, I can name a bunch of characters that would've been more appropriate... from Marvel, for example... The Human Torch, Thor, Iron Man, The Vision (who was eventually made into glider form), And at DC, there'd be Wonder Woman, Red Tornado, Green Lantern, for starters. OK, so not all of those characters would've been immediately recognizeable by the decision-makers at Marx...
