Miss Liberty and Her Erect Cape Monday!

Today's post also came from Captain Fearless #1, but it was so awesome I decided to give it a spotlight of its own. How I wish, oh I wish, I could get my mitts on Captain Fearless #2

Now, I want you to take a look at Miss Victory's cape, because I was mesmerized by it.  The thing is always up in the air.

Even when she shucks her disguise, up it goes.  Does she have underwire on that thing, or what?

See?  I was almost so distracted by the cape that I nearly missed the fact that it looks like something very wrong is going on there.  I mean, I'm sure the bad guy deserves a smiting and all that, but Miss Liberty is getting downright Biblical on the guy.  Won't he be getting enough of that in prison?

I swear to you, I didn't crop this.  There is no dialog.  She's just standing there, with her cape defying gravity.

I'm not sure why she thought they would meet again.  I don't think guys who are convicted of treason were handed community service, if you know what I mean.

We'll meet again, Mr. Axis, and when we do, I can assure you that my cape will remain ever-vertical!

Not sure what happened there.  She seems to be smiling, so I guess it was no big deal.  And the cape is still floating, so I'd say "all systems are go."

Can't you just taste the drama?  Someone had some serious storytelling skillz, yo!
And it looks like her cape might actually be a little.... er, flacid by this time, but you can't tell for sure.  Floaty Cape.  Floaty, Floaty Cape....

Where he's saying "rubber," imagine that he's referring to condoms.  That's what I did, and the entertainment value shot through the roof.

Will we see more of Miss Liberty and her cape?  Only time will tell.

See you tomorrow!

I don't know about Miss Liberty, but Miss Victory kept popping up thruout the Holyoke line, eventualy getting a one-time book of her own (Holyoke One-Shot #3 !

Yeah, I'm nitpicking, but the (Dare)devil's in the details...

Miss Liberty, BTW appeared in DC's Tomahawk comic. Her descendant is the All-Star Squadron's Liberty Belle.

...and that is why I continue to read this blog. Comics really don't make any sense. This cape is actually worse than invisible alien robots.

And years later, the cape was analyzed and used as the basis for Viagra.

wait a minute, Miss Victory's real last name was WAYNE? Any relation to Bruce Wayne, I wonder....

would had made it ten times more funnier for me.

I also get the feeling that she stuck a small portable fan on her back under the cape so that she would always have that dramatic billowing cape effect. :P

Miss Victory was Joan Wayne, pilgrim! ;-)

There's a whole "similar last name" thing with unrelated comics characters(in this case from different comics companies).
I always thought it'd be kool to discover that Lois Lane and Margot Lane were sisters or cousins, considering their shared interest in caped heroes who constantly had to rescue them...
Roy Thomas, in particular, has a real knack for linking otherwise unrelated heroes by finding this sort of thing.

A week of Miss Liberty will make up for that awful week of Super Pro.

Well, I'm off to a committee meeting.

Judging from Batman back issues, mini-fans were as much a part of costume props as spirit gum for masks.
