The vagaries of the superhuman lifestyle are wild and unpredictable.  Sometimes you get a new suit, sometimes new powers appear out of the blue..  Sometimes you lose your powers on M-Day, then get immediately bitten by a vampire.  Sometimes, though, you have that full-on Dorothy Gale ruby slippers experience.  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Bouncing Boy, Presents:

TEN SUPERS WHO HAD THE POWER ALL ALONG!

10) PHANTOM LADY


Originating at Quality Comics in the 1940s, Sandra Knight fought evil in a bathing suit and cape, until Quality’s demise in the 1940s.  Later revived at DC Comics , the Quality heroes were assigned Earth-X, where World War II was fought will into the 1970s.  Later migrating to Earth-1, Sandra discovered that the powers of her Black Light Ray were internalized and she gained the additional power to turn intangible thanks to her universal migration.  (Sandra’s uniform also got smaller and smaller with each passing decade…)

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
