History

Wing (full name Wing How) began as a uniformed chauffeur of the Crimson Avenger's alter ego Lee Travis. A Chinese immigrant who moved to America to escape Japanese persecution in the days leading up to World War II, Wing helps to instill a social conscience in his employer. When the death of a fellow reporter motivates Travis to become the Crimson Avenger, Wing assists him in his fight against crime. Curiously, despite Wing's initial lack of a costume, no one ever makes a connection between Travis' chauffeur and the Crimson Avenger.

When the Crimson Avenger abandons his cloak and fedora for a more traditional superhero costume, Wing dons a matching yellow costume and becomes his official sidekick.[1] He serves as a member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory (as the honorary "eighth Soldier") and the All-Star Squadron. However, the Crimson Avenger frequently attempts to dissuade Wing from this path, believing that the bright young man has a better future ahead of him than running about in a costume fighting madmen.

When the Justice League and the Justice Society join forces against Iron Hand and retreive the Seven Soldiers of Victory from whence they had been scattered in time by the cosmic being known as the Nebula Man, it is revealed that Wing sacrificed his life to defeat it.[2]

Notes

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-Two era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
  • He bears more than a slight resemblance to Kato, the sidekick of The Green Hornet.

You may also be looking for the Starfleet officer, Commander Wing, from Star Trek: Phoenix-X.

A wing (also called an attack wing or unit) is a Starfleet designation for a grouping of between three and ten starships usually commanded by a senior captain. Multiple wings are usually grouped into a tactical wing.

There are three types of wings. If a wing is made up of only one class of starship then it is referred to as a class wing. This is the most common wing organization as ships of the same class work well together and can resupply each other.

Wings made up similar types of starships are referred to as type wings, for example cruiser wing, carrier wing or fighter wing.

Finally, destroyer wings are mixed matched wings of vessels no larger then a cruiser.

Wings do not have permanent designation as tactical wings do. If the Starfleet Fifth Fleet and Starfleet Second Fleet combine forces for example, the 4th destroyer wing, Fifth Fleet might be changed to 12th destroyer wing as part of the combined force.

Other uses

Breen

The Breen divided up their tilga'kars into wings called jelga. Made up of three to eight ships jelgas usually contain vessels of the same size rather then mix capital ships with attack fighters. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Cardassian

The Cardassians split their tar'elk into wings of 10 - 15 starships called a kel'elk (plural kel'elkor). A gul commanded a kel'elk from the lead vessel in the group. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Dominion

The Dominion also organized its forces into wings in a similar fashion to Starfleet, generally in type wings. Wings made up of smaller vessels such as the Jem'Hadar attack ship were generally larger in number with up to thirty vessels in a single wing. Wings made up of larger capital ships usually ranged between 3-10 vessels. A wing is usually commanded by a Vorta suba'toran. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Lyran

The Lyran Star Empire grouped ships into wings made up of a single type of hulls (although the flagships of wings often were more heavily armed and equipped than other ships in the wing) that could go from three ships, like Lion-class dreadnoughts to six ships for smaller ships like police cutters. They were commanded by commodores. (RIS Bouteina: "Broken Bread")

Star Trek: Swiftfire fighter wing

In Star Trek: Swiftfire, a wing also referred to a grouping of Starfleet attack fighters of two or more squadrons. A wing is usually commanded by a Wing Commander, though an officer of any rank in command of the wing is given the honorary title of Wing Commander, much like a person in command of a starship is referred to as captain regardless of rank.

The difference between this and the usage by Starfleet above is that in Star Trek: Swiftfire a squadron comprise of twelve fighters, which means a fighter wing can be several times the size stated in The Dominion War Sourcebook.

Star Trek: Banshee Squadron fighter wing

In Star Trek: Banshee Squadron, the term "wing" is used very loosely, inaccurately, and interchangeably with the term "squadron". A wing or squadron is simply a group of starfighters, usually numbering five, under the command of a Wing Commander.

Starwars

(Redirected to Fighter wing article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The term fighter wing was an organizational unit and the largest unit of starfighters fielded by most space navies, including the Alliance to Restore the Republic/New Republic Defense Force, the Imperial Navy, and the Yuuzhan Vong fleet.[1]

Contents

Imperial Navy

In the navy of the Galactic Empire, the fighter wing usually referred to all of the starfighters carried aboard an Imperial-class Star Destroyer, which amounted to six squadrons or seventy-two starfighters and bombers. Each squadron was typically divided into four flights of three fighters. The types of starfighters used within an Imperial fighter wing varied, with wings stationed on newer front-line vessels such as Executor-class Star Dreadnoughts making greater use of advanced fighters such as the TIE/In starfighter.[2]

Ground support wings attached to the Imperial Army were smaller than naval wings, consisting of ten flights of four fighters. Three flights formed a TIE/sa bomber squadron, six flights formed two TIE/ln starfighter squadrons, and one flight flew TIE/fc starfighters to act as spotters.[2] In addition to the 40 pilots, the wing had 25 sensor techs, 25 controllers, and 60 ground crew personnel for a total of 150 men.[2] Presumably, the naval wing had similar numbers of non-flying personnel.

Rebel Alliance/New Republic

Within the Rebel Alliance, and later the New Republic, a fighter wing generally consisted of three squadrons of starfighters. These wings were approximately half the size of an Imperial Navy wing, with three squadrons of twelve fighters. Three squadrons was the usual number of fighters that were stationed aboard large Rebel capital ships such as Mon Calamari Star Cruisers.[3] Squadrons assigned to the same wing that operated independently of a warship almost always flew the same types of craft. For example, General Horton Salm's Defender Wing was originally made up of Y-wings, but later fully converted to B-wings.[4]

They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: toy
Wing is an Autobot from the Victory and Micromaster Collection portions of the Generation One continuity family.
Hi, I'm Wing McClure. You might know me from a dozen Armada episodes or several million Cartoon Network commercials.

Wing is the leader of the Autobot group known as the Multiforce. This also makes him half of the combiner duo Wingwaver and the head module of Landcross. Wing is practically indistinguishable from Wingwaver by personality except that he is possibly even more gutsy. Wing has shown no hesitation in facing six-to-one odds. Wing is almost always the top half of Wingwaver and gives the duo form his dashing good looks. Where he gets his winning personality might be more of a mystery.

Toys

Victory

  • Wingwaver (1989)
Japanese ID number: C-316
Wing transforms into a white plane of unknown design. He came packaged with his partner, Waver, or as part of the complete Landcross giftset.

Micromaster Collection

  • Wing (Micromaster, 2002)
A reissue of Wing, this version replaces the stickers with paint applications.


Trivia

  • Wing's character model frequently showed up as a generic character in the Armada cartoon (where it probably got more screentime than it ever did in Victory). More pertinently, Wing's dramatic run-and-transform sequence seen in First Encounter was used extensively in Cartoon Network advertising and featured in the original Toonami "intro" for Armada, inexplicably making him a familiar-if-entirely-unrecognized sight on American television for Armada's duration on TV.
