Check this out:
Stupid Comics Code Authority.
For you non-comic book nerdlingers: Phantom Lady was notorious for wearing an outfit that was much more revealing, but then there was the whole Seduction of the Innocent and subsequent Congressional investigation that brought about the Comics Code Authority and ruined it for everyone.
And yup, she wore blue and red when Fox Feature Syndicate published her in the mid-1940's. This particular issue came from the short-lived Ajax-Farrell Publication run. She wouldn't go back to her original yellow-and-green until DC Comics revived a bunch of Quality characters in the awesome yet short-lived Freedom Fighters and Plastic Man titles of the 1970's.
But this issue did have a graphic depiction of a guy getting his teeth knocked out by a cue ball, so there's that:
As is often the case, the whole "secret identity" thing bothers me. Thusly:
Okay, she's well-known in the Pentagon. Got that? She's the daughter of a Senator, and is familiar enough that the the guards know who she is. Are you with me?
And here she is as Phantom Lady a few moments later:
No mask at all. She doesn't even put on a wig. No glasses, no nothing. She's well-known around the joint, but she parades around in a costume that does nothing to alter her facial features and no one says a thing.
I think she was recognized all over the place, but her daddy the Senator told everyone to play along. That's how life works.
Enough of that. It's time for some Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!)
Yeah! Take that, Comics Code Authority!
See you Monday!
