And I was avoiding she-heroes. Though I don’t know why when female Ghostbusters and fem-Thor are apparently the pinnacle of feminist characters.

Which is why this is called Regressive Left. They aren’t interested in any progress. They will shat and erase any progress that was ever made, solely because they want to be historically remembered for “changing the Status Quo”.

Like a fireman putting out the fire he started.

Invaders Profile: Madeline Joyce-Frank AKA Miss America:

Character History
(Note: This is a combination of modern stories a might not fit her 1940’s origin 100%) Madeline was involved in an accident involving lightening hitting scientific equipment and woke up with the abilities to fly and had extraordinary strength, so she became a superhero. When every Invader but Bucky was captured by the Red Skull, she was part of the Liberty Legion Bucky formed to help get them back. After The Invaders were rescued, the Liberty Legion remained in America to protect the homefront during WWII (because America was so threatened…). 

At some point she joined the Invaders proper because Toro and Bucky left to be part of the Kid Commandos. 

After WWII, the Liberty Legion and and The Invaders both disbanded, but The Human Torch, Toro, Bucky (Fred Davis) II, Captain America II (William Nasland) and III (Jeff Mace), Namor, and The Whizzer (Robert Frank)  joined Miss America in the All-Winners squad. Though publicly "Captain America" leaded the quad, behind the scenes, Miss America is often shown to be the one actually calling the shots and handling team issues. For a short while, she and Jeff feed public speculation that Captain America and Miss America are an item, until she announces she’s actually engaged to The Whizzer. 

And now she gets hit by “Woman in Comics Syndrom”
Her baby first baby is a radioactive mutant (Nuklo) and has to be looked away and eventually ends up evil. Then she dies giving birth to her second one, who is still born. (fun comic crack fact: the mid wife tried to give baby twins Wanda and Pietro to the Whizzer, but he refused).

It’s later revealed that Miss America was in hell for being racist. However, she is brought back to life for 24 hours and falls in love with The Anarachist (who is a black man) and they both leave hell to go to heaven.  


Real World Information
Miss America was a Marvel Superheroine originally introduced in in 1943 in Marvel Mystery Comics #49. She was an early attempt by Marvel to draw in girl readers to comics and got her own comic Miss America. However, after just one issue, the comic was revamped into a more magazine style to focus on teen-romance, and tips on cooking, make-up, and fashion. Miss America was regulate to somewhere in the back. However, she was also part of the original two issues of the All-Winners team, along with Captain America, Bucky, Toro, Torch, Namor, and The Whizzer.

She was included on The Invaders after an editorial mandate to remove Toro and Bucky from the Team as the feeling was that the kid sidekicks were not liked (also IIRC Roy Thomas the then writer, didn’t want them on the team). 

She’s made several guest appearances in comics over the years. Notable ones include:
- The Invaders (1193 four issue Mini series)
- Captain America: The Patriot (2010 four issue miniseries)
- X-Statix Presents: Dead Girl (2006 miniseries)
- All Winners (2009 75the anniversary One shot)
