Will o’the Wisp. Gale Leary’s father helped put Boss Evans, a gangster, in jail. When Boss Evans escapes from jail, he pays the Leary family a visit, killing Mrs. Leary and crippling Mr. Leary. The infant Gale is pacified only when a certain willow branch is put in her hands. Now, as an adult, she avenges her mother’s death by giving Boss Leary a heart attack. That done, she changes her hair color to blonde and, using the magic willow branch, has a series of crime fighting adventures in the US and Mexico. Her willow branch glows and has whatever powers the plot requires it to have.
