Number 1141: The great Mr. Sinn and the great Jet Powers
This is the second story from Jet #1, first of four issues published by ME Comics in 1950 and '51. Jet, a science fiction hero in the lone wolf mold, was written by Gardner Fox and drawn by Bob Powell.
Mr. Sinn, a hideously green-colored Asian stereotype, (who took on a more normal skin tone in issue #2), launches his artificial moon, a satellite, to wreak havoc from orbit. Jet, who has a private spacecraft—and has not shared this technology with the U.S. government—has a confrontation with him high above the Earth.
Mr. Sinn showed up for his final battle with Jet Powers in Jet #2. This is another of my re-scanned presentations. I have shown this story before, a few years ago.
