In Speed Comics #23 they are part of a one-time super-team: Shock Gibson, Ted Parrish, Pat Parker, Girl Commandos, Captain Freedom, Dick Lane, and the Black Cat. The Girl Commandos appear in stories with titles like “The Devil’s Sister,” “Murder and the Masquerade of Mei-Ling,” and “The Battle for Burma.”
