    Love the jolly sailors dancing the hornpipe.

    And yes, the suit is pretty high tech for 1901. It allows him to float in Arctic waters with no discomfort whatsoever!

    Perhaps the first steampunk action hero.

    Interesting. I’d seen Billy Bounce before, but I just thought he was an extremely fat kid who could bounce. I didn’t know about the suit.

    You could say he’s the forerunner of Bouncing Boy of the Legion of Super Heroes!

    @SKJAM!

    It looks a lot like a 21st century survival suit

    The SS Ice Cream. What a marvelous name to enchant the children. Ah. what an innocent time. How many children read this and had wonderful fantasies of doing the impossible?
