Thanks to Andrea Cantucci for informing me of this character. Dennis Ray sent me additional images (everything but the top image) and info, including letting me know that France's Super J was Italy's Junior re-named, and notes "Junior had a female companion who's name is Marzia, she does not apparently have any super powers. He works with an older man named Senior, he may be a relative, possibly his grandfather but it is not clear in the story I have. Senior wears a costume with an S on it but other than being able to operate a spaceship he does not seem to have any special abilities."
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Junior Angel, younges member of the Cursed Earth's infamous Angel Gang
Any Additions/Corrections? Please let me know.
