Miss America, created by Otto Binder (co-creator also of Mary Marvel and Supergirl) and Al Gabriele, was a minor character compared to her Golden Age Marvel contemporaries: The Human Torch, Toro, Captain America, and Namor, The Submariner. Little is revealed about Miss America beyond the fact that she’s super strong (although not on Namor’s level), that she can fly, and does radio stories about various war-time topics, along with the fact that she’s engaged to The Whizze, a character with similar powers, as well as a similar costume, to DC’s The Flash. Overall, is a fun read, and pays tribute to an important part of the backbone of U.S. Industry during World War II, the countless “Rosie’s” (“Rosie the Riveter,” immortalized by Norman Rockwell, was the image of the U.S. Government’s motivational and propagandistic campaign during World War II to inspire young women, mostly of middle class standing, to go to work in the many airplane factories, shipyards, and converted automobile plants, which were making tanks and other mobile and motorized personnel carriers and war machines.) who kept America supplied during the war.
