Miss America (Marvel)(01 - Madeline Joyce)
Real Name: Madeline Joyce
Search for 'Miss America (Marvel)(01 - Madeline Joyce)' on Amazon


Powers:
An electrical discharge from an unknown experimental equipment gave Madeline Joyce the ability to levitate herself through psionic means. By using her levitation ability in connection with carefully planned leaps, Miss America could use her power to fly. She could attain any height at which she could still breathe (approximately 20,000 feet).

Weaknesses:
She could use this power for about 2 hours before mental fatigue would force her to rest. Also fatigue poisons accumulate much slower in her body than that of a normal human, giving her a heightened "vitality."

Bio:
Socially aware teenaged Madeline Joyce was born in Washington, D.C.. She was the niece and ward of radio mogul James Bennet, who was sponsoring a Professor Lawson, a scientist claiming to have gotten superpowers through a device that had been struck by lightning. Joyce, secretly tampering with the contraption during a thunderstorm that night, herself gained the ability to fly and great strength after lightning similarly struck, knocking her unconscious. Joyce survived to fight crime as Miss America.

Later, she became a member of Timely's superhero team the All-Winners Squad, fighting alongside Captain America and Bucky, the original Human Torch and Toro, the Sub-Mariner, and the Whizzer in the group's adventures.
It was revealed later that Joyce married fellow Golden Age superhero Robert Frank (the Whizzer), and which she had a son with him. However, Joyce died in childbirth due to radiation poisoning from her offspring, the radioactive mutant Nuklo.

Notes:
Timely's Miss America may be the only character in comics history to have been kicked out of her own, self-titled publication. She only appeared in issue #1 of Miss America--but the title continued for years.

First Appearance: Marvel Mystery Comics (1939) #49
