Miss America (I). Joan Dale is visiting the Statue of Liberty when she wishes aloud that she could do "all the good...if (she) had the powers of that Statue." She falls asleep and has a dream that the Statue gives her magic powers. She wakes up, finds that she actually has the powers, and goes on to fight the enemies of America. Her powers are undefined but vast; she can do just about anything. Her opponents are ordinary men and women. She appears in stories with titles like “The Fifth Columnists at the Wax Museum,” “The Bandleader Spy,” and “The Hungry House.”
