Learning to Fly - Position 8: Backwards

Being a series of vignettes aimed at educating the super-powered reader about the various possible permutations of the flight posture.Though the position shown above looks a lot like simple Air Diving (Position 2), it's a matter of perspective. Powdered Toast Man actually flies feet first, i.e. backwards. Unusual to be sure, though heroes with 360 degree vision may see this as a viable - and surprising! - alternative to the standard style. Squashed bugs will be on your feet, not on your face, not to mention that pesky dry skin resulting from friction.

And before you think that only PT Man uses it and that it is thus "silly", be aware that it occurs in nature:
So theoretically, it's part of Animal Man's arsenal. And there's nothing "silly" about him.
