spring heeled jack was from the late victorian period he was said to be able to bound over high brick walls and would terrorize people by suddenly appearing in front of them down allyways, and they would run away in panic. There was a comic made about him in latter years. In 1969 during the moon landings old people from England noticed that the men on the moon looked a lot like spring heeled jack as they could "bounce" big distances due to the lack of strong gravity. Is it possible that Jack was an alien that had crashed on planet earth, and the reason he could jump such distances was that he came from a planet with stronger gravity than our own? Perhaps he was just trying to make contact in desperation. If so he probably had a very sad time of it.
