* Combined with MinovskyPhysics in the 1928 pulp novel ''Armageddon 2419 A.D.'' (which later inspired ''Buck Rodgers''). Inertron is a substance with "reverse weight" (anti-gravitational properties), so that a person carrying an amount of inertron equal to most of his weight can travel rapidly across country in long leaps with the aid of a "jumper" (rocket motors encased in inertron blocks and strapped to the back).

* ''ComicBook/IronMan'' has the rocket boots. In the [[Film/IronMan film]] this leads to some AmusingInjuries before he learns to control them.
** This was clearly a retcon of the comic-book ''Iron Man,'' due to the fact that boot-only rockets would too-obviously end up failing hilariously as shown; thus since comic-bok Iron Man already had repulsor-rays in his gauntlets, they rationalized that he could simply use them to stabilize himself in flight, and avoid flipping over backwards like that when he fired his rocket-boots.
