There was a guy who got himself one of these back in the thirties and made a big stink for a while as a crimefighter. Things have changed, though, and it takes more than a fancy personal flying machine to grant hero status these days. The average villain has more than just a gun and an evil plan; you've got to deal with mutant powers, foul death rays, mechanically enhanced sea creatures, and all sorts of dire henchmen. Getting there is only a small part of the battle.
Still, this thing is pretty darn cool.

- When running away, this message sometimes appears:
You turn and use your heroic speed to bravely run away, away. Your opponent tries to hit you one last time before you disappear, but you jam down on the launch button of your jet-powered backpack. The burst only lasts for a couple of seconds, but it's enough to give you the clearance you need.
- The description refers to The Rocketeer.
