Jerry Siegel‘s latest creation, the Star-Spangled Kid and his adult sidekick Stripesy, technically made their debut in Action Comics #40 (July 1941) in a sneak peak, but made their first full appearance in Star Spangled Comics #1 (August 1941). Like most spoiled, rich, highly skilled, acrobatic kids with a lot of time on their hands in the 1940s, Sylvester Pemberton decided to suit up in leotards and fight Nazis and fifth-columnist with his adult chauffeur, Pat Dugan.
I never really got a taste for this character, even when he became Skyman. The second Star-Spangled Kid who later took the name Stargirl, was created in the late 1990s by Geoff Johns. She ended up being more popular, making television appearances in Smallville and then Legends of Tomorrow years later. She is set to star in her own television series in 2020.
