Ms. Victory (AC Comics)
Real Name: Joan Wayne
Search for 'Ms. Victory (AC Comics)' on Amazon


Powers:
Ms. Victory is respected by every member of the Femforce as a superior tactician, an able leader, and an experienced combatant. She has an IQ of 220 and can fly at speeds up to 200 m.p.h. She can also hold her breath for over 4 hours, and she is highly invulnerable. There's more, but she doesn't like to brag.

Bio:
Joan Wayne, a.k.a., Miss Victory, was first published in Captain Fearless #1 by Holyoke Comics back in August 1941. Along with Miss America, and the Phantom Lady, she was one of the first Golden Age superheroines. As Miss Victory the blue eyed blonde battled crime and the Nazis during WWII. She was one of the first patriotic female superheros of her day.

Like most Golden Age comic book characters she had no formal origin story nor introduction. Though in issue 21 of Captain Aero it is explained that the great American soldier "Mad Anthony" Wayne, of the Revolutionary War, was an ancestor of hers. With that story it was also established that Miss Victory worked for the intelligence service.

In 1941 Joan was a stenographer in the office of the Secretary of Commerce in Washington, D.C. By the mid 1940's she had become a Captain and fighter pilot over the Pacific.

Joan's desire to help the war effort, led her to don the patriotic guise of Miss Victory: a tight fitting red white and blue costume with plunging neck line and V emblem across her chest.

Due to not having an origin story, it was left unexplained as to how she was able to survive explosions, break free of ropes, knock down walls, or man handle several big powerful men at the same time. But is clear that in Captain Aero Comics she had Superhuman strength and limited invulnerablity.

She was called amazing, mighty, & powerful. And was always portrayed as a brave powerhouse of a women with a great deal of determination to see good vanquish evil. Yet sadly like almost all her costumed counterparts, this positive female role model vanished once the interest in superhero comics started to trail off after WWII.

The golden age Joan Wayne was last seen in Captain Aero #26, August 1946, in which the patriotic war hero Miss Victory had now gone into the crimefighting business, taking on gangsters in New York City.
