Thanks to Satyajit Nadkarni for informing me of the existence of this character. Apparently he "looks very much like Mr. Amitabh Bachchan - one of the greatest actors in the history of Indian Cinema."
Thanks to Suresh S for providing the following information: "Supremo was supposed to be the costumed alter ego of Indian film superstar Amitabh Bachchan. He has 2 boy sidekicks -Vijay and Anthony (they are again normal human beings and do not wear any special costume). Incidentally the names of the sidekicks are taken from famous screen roles of Mr. Bachchan. He has a falcon as a pet, who also acts as scout." Thanks also to Debajyoti Guha for naming Supremo's falcon, identifying his creator, and providing the black and white image used here. Thanks to Eddie Sonnenblik for providing the colour image of Supremo.
