* I dig this theory. Though I think it would be more accurate to say TheRocketeer was an unofficial prequel to Sky Captain, since it happens before America entered the war, Sky Captain seems to take place after such a war happened, and there isn't as much rampant retrofuture tech around. Perhaps the notoriety that TheRocketeer garnered led to the formation of mercenary groups such as Sky Captain's private military with advanced technology as opposed to government-funded military, which led to a WeirdWarII that ended sooner than in our reality.

Not an [[EpilepticTrees epileptic tree]] so much as a small sprout with poor coordination. The only two people in the world who can create RaygunGothic wondertech? One old enough to be the other's father? It's not only a no-brainer, it's a negative-brainer.

Think about it: Airships still cross the skies, and weird science like the one that created the rocket pack is not unheard of (and even goes ''further''). It wouldn't be a surprise if Howard Hughes lent Dex a hand in customizing Sky Captain's planes. Though any US plans to start a war with Nazi Germany, especially in light of the Los Angeles incident, would have taken a backseat following Totenkopf's attacks.
