The Blimp is the son of Captain Swift (a parody of the Flash), a member of the Freedom Brigade who was capable of running and flying at exceptional speeds. He is a member of the Inferior Five.  He makes his living as the owner of a diner. 


The Blimp was created by E. Nelson Bridwell, Joe Orlando and Mike Esposito.  

Character Evolution

 Although designed as a gag or spoof type of character he nonetheless has shown up in some mainstream DC comics, such as at the funeral of Booster Gold.    

Powers and Abilities

 The Blimp inherited his father's flight, but lacks his father's speed. He can only fly very slowly, and "with a tailwind".
