Obscure Comic Book Character of the Week

This week’s random character is Madam Fatal from Quality Comics (playing it kind of fast and loose with that name, eh, Quality Comics?). Madam Fatal was comic’s first cross-dressing character (hooray?). When Richard Stanton’s daughter is kidnapped, he uses his acting skill to create a new persona as an elderly lady called Madame Fatal. While dressing up as Madame Fatal, Richard found he was underestimated by his daughter’s kidnappers, and able to get the upper hand. After rescuing her, he decided to adopt the identity and fight for the side of good, becoming the first transvestite hero. Stanton lives alone with his pet parrot Hamlet (are you sure he’s not an elderly lady?). “She” appeared in the first twenty-two issues of Crack Comics. After the line was bought out by DC Comics, Madame Fatal disappeared and was never seen again. Good call, DC.
