Meredith "Merry" Creamer was an orphan adopted by the Pemberton family as a playmate for their son Sylvester and his brother, becoming Merry Pemberton. When Merry discovered that Sylvester was actually the Star Spangled Kid, she became his partner for a time as Merry, the Girl of 1,000 Gimmicks (sometimes shortened to Gimmick Girl) while Sylvester's usual partner, Stripesy was recovering from a broken leg.

In adulthood, she married Henry King (not knowing he was the the super villain Brainwave), and had a son, Henry King Jr., who grew up to become the superhero also called Brainwave. Merry was reported to have died of a broken heart after discovering her husband's villainy.

Years later, it was revealed that Merry was still alive, and she had a daughter Jacqueline Pemberton. Merry was then reunited with her son. She became a founding member of Old Justice, a group of retired former child super heroes who joined together to prevent other young heroes from following their example and endangering themselves.
