Powers and Abilities

Skyrocket has the power to shoot bursts of “fireworks” from his fingertips. These blasts are intensely hot and bright enough to blind even Superman.

He also has small rocket-tubes strapped to his arms and legs that allow him to fly.


An unnamed scientist gave Skyrocket his powers and equipment. Together the two planned robberies for Skyrocket to commit. They used an abandoned house as a base, not realizing that Batman’s old enemy The Riddler was also hiding out there.

The Riddler overheard their schemes. Considering this new villain a competitor, he decided to tip off the Super-Friends by giving them riddle-clues to Skyrocket’s crimes. But Riddler’s psychological compulsion forced him to commit crimes of his own that *also* fit the clues.

The Super-Friends had a tough time trying to track down these two wily criminals simultaneously. But eventually both evildoers were captured.


Skyrocket is a tall, slender man, with a black beard and moustache.

He wears a purple bodysuit with blue boots and trunks, and a purple-and-blue helmet. The suit has fins on the back, legs, and helmet, and a white rocket emblem on the chest. Small rocket tubes are strapped to his forearms and shins.


Skyrocket is a brash and confident thief, with no qualms at all about taking on the likes of Superman and Wonder Woman in the course of his crimes.

His m.o. is pretty simple : swoop in at great speed, grab the loot, and swoop back out again (shooting off his “fireworks” as needed to dissuade any pursuers).
