Random Comic Book Splash Page #4

The rare superhero(ine) to sport eyeglasses, rather than the traditional mask, to hide her secret identity, Miss America debuted in MARVEL MYSTERY COMICS #49 in 1943. I was unable to ascertain the artist who drew this splash page in SUN GIRL #1, in which Miss America played second fiddle to the title heroine, but it appears to have been written by its editor, the inimitable Stan Lee.

Surprisingly, Miss America, unlike the majority of her Golden Age Atlas/Marvel brethren, survives in today's Marvel Universe, having appeared in 2006's X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL
