Role on Super Power Island
He stands on at top of the Daily Paper tower and indirectly gives you the ability to fly through a telephone booth, but only after you defeat five villains (namely Copy Cat, Speeding Spike, Sir Rebral, Ratman and Crusher). After your quest, if you click on him he will say "Well done, kid. Not bad at all."
