Project Superpowers: Before the Masquerade

PROJECT SUPERPOWERS #3 arrived this week with a cover featuring Masquerade and The Mighty Samson!!

Diana Adams, aka Masquerade, made her debut in EXCITING COMICS #51 as Miss Masque. One interesting thing is the story starts out: "Greed...begins a startling new chapter in the drama-packed life of Diana Adams...as once again she assumes the perilous role of Miss Masque..." The only problem being: this was her first appearance! Can you imagine the poor kids of the time scrambling to try and find her earlier adventures? Miss Masque had been preceded by The Woman in Red, perhaps the writer had gotten the two confused.

In fact, the Alex Ross design of Masquerade almost shares more in common with The Woman in Red than Miss Masque.

Alrighty, now onto the story! The first adventure of Miss Masque!!!

(September 1946)
