    She went on to playing an important role in convincing Namor to fight the Nazis, as well as was the person responsible for stopping Namor and Torch from fighting. During the 50s, she and Namor had many adventures together fighting aliens, giant robots and monsters -- and commies! In the Silver Age, she agreed to be the guardian of Namorita, who took Betty's married named as her own.

    She was a great female character of the Golden Age, though she had no super powers.

    My favourite part is that she's wearing a handbag, specifically for her gun, underwater.

    I entered this topic just to post this, also. She's a fascinating character, and as far as I'm concerned she's still in continuity, just forgotten. So much potential--I wouldn't change a thing about her, not even her look.

    Marvel should roll the dice on a PACIFIC RIM-style series with Red Ronin piloted by Rob as the centerpiece of the story.

    I always thought they should relaunch Red Ronin and just recon those old Godzilla stories into Fing Fang Foom ones.

    Given that this is a new thread, I will make the first step



    Louise Grant
    also known as
    Blonde Phantom

    An initial thought to get into the right mindset: It is actually fairly difficult to make a female character look both bad@ss AND gorgeous and yet still keep the balance between the two, particularly given the means (both technical and financial) of the time and the commercial niche (it was cheap pulp fiction with pictures, not any recognized form of higher art at the time)

    Now feast your eyes upon this

    Attachment 15787


    I kid you not, had I been a 8-14 year old boy in that era, I would have devoured this comic, looking at Louise Grant like a cool big sister I sadly don't have. (To give a frame of reference, I was born in 1986 and I an elder and a younger brother, no sisters)

    PS: most of the characters appearing here will likely by ladies given the inspiration for the thread, however men are welcome too I also started the thread in Marvel Comics, because the inspiration for it and the first depicted character are both from Marvel. Don't be afraid to write about DC characters. If the mods don't agree, we can still open a sister thread over in the DC corner.
    PPS: I deliberately made only links and only spoke the barest of the character to encourage readers to add with comments, thoughts and discussion. So post away
    I have some good news for you; Read Sensational She-Hulk from the 1980's and you'll see plenty of Blonde Phantom. Steve Gerber introduces her early in the 22nd issue, and she stays a
    regular character through almost the entire thing. I recommend this entire run, too. 1-60.shehulk.jpg

    Awesome

    thanks man, you rock



    Go on people, show and tell about the characters you liked, give people reason to read old runs, pictures, links, descriptions, interpretations. Give it all, you know you want to.

    Those two minis were actually pretty decent, even if you aren't a Marvel Zombies aficionado. Lots of quality appearances by obscure characters, even if many of them die horribly. I'm pretty sure Battlestar survived, though.
    He was mentioned recently in the Death of Wolverine. It's stated in passing that some mysterious people had stolen his shield (later revealed to be goons working for Weapon x) and melted it down for the adamantium.

    You're right! She was great and then they let Bendis turn her into a joke and, later, kill her off (in his volume of Moon Knight).

    She deserved better than that. The only witness to her death was a crazy guy who hallucinated all over the place, we need a follow-up that said he imagined the whole thing.

    And maybe even include this forgotten Red Ronin in it, lol...
