    THE FEMALE MENACE

    You've probably heard of Red Sonja and Vampirella. And these days you've probably also gotten wind of Dejah Thoris, the main lady lead in the John Carter of Mars stories, and perhaps even Mulan Kato, highly competent partner of the socialite/vigilante Green Hornet. Jungle Girl was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Miss Fury is basically a female Batman, but when we get to Masquerade, and Lady Zorro even I'm at a loss.
