His Royal Airness himself becomes Fly Boy once he dons Hebru Brantley's iconic stylized goggles. Brantley's character Flyboy is inspired by the Tuskeegee Airmen, an African American military Air Force unit that flew during World War II. FlyBoy challenges the archetype of the American superhero.

Hebru Brantley creates narrative-driven work revolving around his conceptualized iconic characters. Brantley utilizes these characters to address complex ideas around nostalgia, the mental psyche, power, and hope. The color palettes, pop-art motifs and characters themselves create accessibility around his layered and multifaceted ideas. Brantley works in a plethora of mediums and his art challenges the traditional view of the hero or protagonist. Through his characters, Brantley seeks to reassess contemporary culture and mythology through the lens of afrofuturism.
