Mason, Joan. Joan Mason is "the country's leading girl reporter." She's beautiful and clever and works for the Daily Planet. She is helped by police officer Mike Mannigan, but it is Joan rather than Mike who is usually responsible for bringing in the bad guys. She provides the brain, he provides the brawn. She is an admirer of the Blue Beetle but has little time for Dan Garrett. She appears in stories with titles like "Firebug," "Murder at the Opera," and "Horror Island."
First Appearance: Blue Beetle #4 (Fox), Fall 1940. 75 appearances, 1940 1950. Created by Louis Cazeneuve and Pierce Rice.
