Reality Alteration: Louise can transform her surroundings into a pocket universe that resembles the panels of a comic book.
Louise Grant, born in Hoboken, New Jersey, was secretary to private detective Mark Mason. Enamored with her boss and wanting to help him break cases, she surreptitiously donned a black domino mask and a sexy, skintight, slit-leg red evening gown and high heels, and ventured out at night fighting crime. Highly athletic and seemingly trained in martial arts, the Blonde Phantom also carried a .45 caliber pistol. In a distaff echo of Superman and Lois Lane, Mason had a crush on the Blonde Phantom, but not on Louise.
Comics historians have noted that, as the Blonde Phantom had no specific origin story, Louise Grant may have been inspired by Marvel-universe model Millie Collins, who appeared at a fancy-dress ball as a masked mystery woman called the Blonde Phantom, in a publicity stunt for General Cosmetics.
Louise was next seen working as a legal secretary for District Attorney Blake Tower. Now widowed, Louise Grant Mason, having left crimefighting to marry Mark in 1949 and give birth to their daughter, Wanda, was generally the voice-of-reason for She-Hulk and Blake Tower.
Louise would often find herself more or less willingly pulled into the She-Hulk's surreal adventures, and occasionally vice-versa. They would contront many menaces, from Stilt-Man to a town where stepping out of line, even swearing, was fatally punished. She would even venture into space, side by side with the She-Hulk. The pair would become allies of the space-faring hero Razorback and his friends.
Louise, affectionately nicknamed "Weezi", began a romantic relationship with Jennifer's father, Morris Walters. She saw daughter Wanda become the costumed crimefighter the Phantom Blonde. She ended up trading physical stature and powers with a none-too pleased Jennifer. Weezi became enamored with her new form and abillities, only changing back when Morris revealed he wanted Weezi the way she had been. Even so, after being kidnapped by the Mole Man, she was exposed to a revivifying liquid that restored her body to that of her Golden Age self. In addition, it was revealed that the Blonde Phantom had an adventure with superhero team, the All-Winners Squad, in a flashback set after the events of (the unhyphenated) All Winners Comics #21 (Winter 1946/47).
