  • Zip-Jet #1-2


  • When reprinted by St. John Publications, Rocket Man was renamed as Zip-Jet and Rocketgirl was never given a code-name other than being referred to as the "Zip-Jet Doll" by some thugs. Their costumes were colored differently and their names were changed to "Tech" Carson and Pat Dale.
  • Many online resources refer to the two as a duo called "the Zip-Jets" however, they were never referred to as such in either of their two appearances. They were also never engaged, Pat was merely "Tech's" assistant with no romantic history between the two.
