Black Venus. Mary Roche, a physical therapist, (initially a USO hostess) is shocked to discover that there are crooks who victimize wounded and disabled WW2 veterans. She puts on a costume, becomes the Black Venus, and goes after them. She has no powers but is a skilled pilot, known as the “Terror of the Burma Skies,” and uses a special plane, which is kept in a small plane hangar in the English woods. She appears in stories with titles like "Adventure into Revenge," "The Blind Soldier and the Phony Charity," and "The Prosthesis Racket."
