There were several Republic serials with this character. "King of the Rocket Men" (1949) was the first; the most famous was probably the Commando Cody character. The serials are... not good.

"King of the Rocket Men": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXh9mehHhjQ
"Radar Men From The Moon": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DSEXqRkQ2M - the Moon looks surprisingly like Bronson Canyon...

 True enough, but you have to admit the controls for the Rocket pack were the most user friendly ever made...

 There is some very irreverent (and hilarious, to my admittedly eccentric tastes) treatment of the series in the Firesign Theater films Hot Shorts and J-Men Forever, which are probably still floating around on youtube.
