''Golden Lad'' was a comic-book series created by Joseph Green and Mort Meskin and published by Spark Comics. It is currently a public-domain property.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The series takes considerable liberties with Pre-Colombian history. For one thing, the Aztec symbol for a heart looks nothing like the heart-shaped pendant that Tommy wears.
* CatchPhrase: By shouting "Heart of Gold!", Tommy Preston becomes Golden Lad.
* HijackedByJesus: The sacrficed Aztecs whose blood powers the Heart of Gold are referred to as "martyrs".
* PublicDomainCharacter: With the closing of Spark Comics, Golden Lad has become a public-domain character.
* SpearCounterpart: After five issues, Golden Lad receives a sidekick, Golden Girl, who has much the same powers.
