Eaglet is in reality Bud Pierce, assistant to scientist Tom Standish who works for the U.S. government. In the city looking for work, Pierce saves Tom's life and they decide to pool their resources to find employment. After helping Tom thwart a nazi plot to poison America's water supply, Pierce would go on to create his own costume to fight criminals as Eaglet, sidekick to American Eagle.

Powers and Abilities

As the son of a circus strongman, Pierce has an exceptional level of strength and agility for a young man his age. He would later possess the same powers of flight, limited invulnerability and strength as American Eagle.

Golden Age Appearances

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
