Powers and Abilities

Miss Masque had no superpowers to utilize in her battle against crime. She did, however, possess expert fighting skills and often carried a gun.


History

Miss Masque was in reality beautiful debutante Diana Adams.

Miss Masque stories can be found in the following comics : Exciting Comics nos.51-54, America’s Best Comics nos.23-31, The Fighting Yank nos.22&24, and The Black Terror no.21. She is featured in contemporary stories (which I have not read) in Femforce, fighting alongside the Avenger.


Description

Her original costume consisted of a large orange hat with a yellow M on it and with a feather sticking out of it, an orange domino mask, a long-sleeved orange dress with a sideways letter M on the chest, an orange cape, orange boots, and orange gloves. Her hair is blonde.

Her later costume consisted of a much smaller red cap (with feather), red cape, red domino mask, red gloves, red high-heeled shoes, a red short-sleeved, midriff-baring shirt, and a red miniskirt.


Personality

Miss Masque is a fairly standard tough, vigilante sort, except that she’s a girl.


Quotes

“Any time a murder takes place, it’s time for Miss Masque to take over !”


DC Universe History

She’s a woman… her name is Diana… heck, why not make *her* the replacement for the Golden Age Wonder Woman ?! You certainly couldn’t do any worse than Byrne’s horrible continuity mishmash !
