Just finished reading The Great Women Superheroes by Trina Robbins. One of the more interesting and obscure heroes from the 1950s was Tomboy, a 10 year girl who would put on a short cape, skirt and mask to fight crime. No apparent powers or any origin as to why a fifth grade girl should decide to start beating up on mobsters but emblematic of the writing of the era in that anyone could become a costumed crimefighter.
