Here's some old ads for Grape Nuts Flakes featuring Volto and his idiot-pal Jimmy. If you have ever seen a fruit pie advertisement or any Marvel comic printed in the last 35 years you will recognize the story formula.
Volto appeared in a few 40's era books pushing breakfast cereal. I read somewhere he was a character in a few actual comic stories but I couldn't find any confirmation of it.
More than likely he was strictly a product-related creation, much like Spider-Man or Batman are today.
Damn damn damn.
I am already obsessively compelled to yell Shazam!, 3X2(9YZ)4A and Kimota! at least once a day because you never know. Now I have to add Volto to that list.
It could happen.
