Synopsis for "The Secret Origin of Miss America"

Circa Late Spring, 1941, on Liberty Island, reporter Joan Dale was gassed and abducted for experimentation by Agent X, for a rogue U.S. War Dept research operation called "Project M." By mistake. They thought she was "John Dale." Then they strapped her to a molecular condenser, and imbued her with a super power: she could transmute the composition AND change the form and function of anything she pointed at. This too was done by mistake; they'd meant to imbue her with super strength. Returning Joan to the bench was a third mistake; the Project M geniuses erroneously believed that she'd been mentally vegetablized by the treatment.

Upon awakening, after being covertly returned to the same bench from which she'd been abducted, she remembered only a hallucination, about receiving her abilities from the spirit of Lady Liberty.

Early in her career, Miss America encountered and defeated Ramon (and his Latin Rhythym Makers), a spy with a squadron of robot-drone dive-bombers. Ramon managed to knock her out with a pistol, but then stupidly didn't shoot her before stuffing her in a trunk and tossing it in the Potomac River. She easily escaped by turning the trunk into seaweed. Ramon's big scheme was to attack a U.S. military base in the DC area, but Miss America blew up his planes in mid-air, then inexplicably ran out of power, THEN fought Ramon hand-to-hand and defeated him anyway.

Miss America's solo career as a mystery woman ran from May to early December 1941, when she was recruited for Uncle Sam's attempt to defend Pearl Harbor, which was successful on Earth-X, but which failed on New Earth.

Miss America could turn a tree, or presumably anything else, into air. She could point at a pair of bundist thugs and turn them into seagulls, and back again. She could turn an albatross into a levitating "glider" to zoom around the sky in, with five full-grown superhero friends. She could create her costume & mask out of street clothes or thin air.
