Evie Nagy writes about the first female superheroine in comics, Miss Fury, who predated Wonder Woman. This makes me want to get the 240 page collection of Miss Fury comics: “In addition to imbuing Miss Fury with physical strength and ass-kicking  ability — which she has, in spades — Tarpé Mills builds the character by  consistently referencing and utilizing Marla’s innate competencies.  It’s not heavy-handed; Marla is not an unrelatable super-genius, a  highly trained tactician, nor a token femme fatale member of a boys’  club. She’s simply smart and courageous, with a strong sense of fairness  and drive to take action.”
