Libby Lawrence operated as the "mystery woman" known as Liberty Belle during World War II, marrying her fellow All-Star Squadron member Johnny Chambers (Johnny Quick). Sometime after the war, though, her marriage to Johnny dissolved in a divorce, and she retired her identity as a superhero to live as Jonathan Law's (Tarantula) paramour as he struggled to write a new novel to follow up on the success of Behind The Mask. In 1949, Lawrence found fame as a television news commentator, which ended up driving a wedge between her relationship with Law, whose struggles with writer's block and alcoholism were now hitting rock bottom and was taking his frustrations out on her.
In 1950, Lawrence along with Law and her former husband Chambers attended the rally in Washington, D.C. where all costumed superheroes were to appear by Presidential decree to show their loyalty. During the rally, Joan Dale (Miss America) publicly exposed Tex Thompson as being the Ultra-Humanite and attempted to also expose Dynaman as being Adolf Hitler in Daniel Dunbar's body when the Ultra-Humanite had Robert Crane (Robotman) silence her by murdering her in public. Rex Tyler (Hourman) took over for Joan Dale in the exposure of both Thompson and Dunbar, causing Dynaman to show his true colors and to attack the various superheroes present. When most of the gathered superheroes failed to stop Dynaman, Chambers became Johnny Quick once more to attempt stopping him, but also fell, only to be awakened by Lawrence as Liberty Belle who comforted him. Out of desperation, he brought forth Ted Knight (Starman) with his experimental new cosmic rod that he was going to use against Dynaman, but it was easily snapped in two. Nevertheless, Lawrence used a broken piece of the rod and jammed it through Dynaman's weakened body, causing him to be electrocuted to death.
Some years later, Libby Lawrence is reunited and living with her ex-husband in the San Fernando Valley, with Chambers considering re-tying the knot with her.
