Etta Candy was a frumpy yet high-spirited student at Holliday College during the early years of World War II. In the winter of 1942, Etta and her friends the Holliday Girls met the Amazon super-hero Wonder Woman, and frequently helped her.[1]

In 1943, Etta Candy was engaged to marry a Hungarian Prince named Hylo Goulash. Before long however, the Holliday Girls and she discovered that Goulash was actually a Nazi agent named Karl Schultz. Schultz had captured Steve Trevor and the Holliday Girls seduced Schultz' men in order to rescue Steve.[2] She also dated Oscar Sweetgulper and several other boys.

Later that year, Etta joined the army as a private and secretary to General Blankenship. She started a relationship with her brother's friend, Pierre Marchand, and had plans to marry. After the war ended, she returned to Holliday College to study as a dietician.[3]

  • This version of Etta Candy (Earth-Two), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Whenever Etta became excited or agitated, she always shouted her trademark catch phrase "Woo-Woo!", which was later explained as a sorority thing.[3]
  • Unlike her Post-Crisis counterpart, Etta Candy never felt ashamed or insecure about her physical appearance. In fact, she delighted in the fact that she was overweight, and proudly carried a box of chocolates with her at all times.
  • Etta has always claimed that she is perpetually sixteen-years-old. As such, the Holliday Girls always presented her with a sixteen-course meal on her birthday. Etta's birthday is on April 1st (April Fools Day).
