Phantom Lady. Sandra Knight, the daughter of Senator Knight, is waiting for her father in Washington when she sees two bad guys try to kill him. She thinks quickly and foils the attack with a rolled-up newspaper. She enjoys the experience, and when she finds an invention that Professor Davis, a friend of the Knight family, sent to her father, she adapts it to help her fight crime as the costumed Phantom Lady. She has no superpowers but is a good fighter and uses the blacklight ray to project darkness and make herself invisible. She fights the cowgirl Ace of Spades, the arsonist Fire Fiend, the Killer Clown, the Robbing Robot, the woman-killer the Subway Slayer, and the cloud-seeding saboteur the Vulture. She appears in stories with titles like “The Dirigible of Doom,” “The School For Spies,” and “Knights of the Crooked Cross.”
