Thanks to Dansen T.Stahl who provided the following information, gleaned from an old fan magazine "Rocket Blast Comi-Collector".

"Costume: Jodhapur pants. Tall leather boots. Belt with two pistol holsters. Wide-cuffed gauntlets. WWII aviator's cap with goggles and hanging cloth covering his face {like the mask on Grifter of WildC.A.T.s}. Long-sleeved leotard {with waist section under the pants} with a circle in the middle of the chest and a very stylized "S" occupying much of the circle. This Aussie version was drawn by Len Lawson and appeared as the back up story in a comic having the strange title "the Rubber Foot Mystery". He was, in reality, Buster McLeod of the Sky Patrol, a police squadron. He left a card on his victims that bore his silhouette and "S" symbol. He had no powers." The original contributors to the magazine were John Ryan and Howard P. Siegel
