The word you are looking for, friends, is "Astronaut."
Wearing pilot goggles, leather jacket, and a long red scarf, The Astro-Naut made no pretense for a secret identity. He was testing rocket ship engines in flights over the city. Everyone knows him by his name, Roy Virgil. They also knew he was a bit eccentric, very wealthy, a visionary. His passion for traveling to space gave him the nickname, The Astro-Naut. That become his calling card.
He sacrificed himself to save Romeyn Falls from imminent destruction. The town then renamed itself in honor of his bravery. The rocket beacon on AstroBank Tower was reconfigured, becoming a warning signal, alerting heroes of impending danger.
