Golden Age Origin

Cynthia Blake, daughter of the banker who holds the mortgage on the Daily Express, was kidnapped by the Moroniabund's most fanatical member, Von Leo. He threatens to kill the banker's daughter if he doesn't foreclose on the Daily Press. He tells the banker to look out the window as he causes an explosion to show the banker he means business.

The Press Guardian infiltrates the Moroniabund's headquarters and frees Cynthia. While attempting to escort her the Press Guardian is recognized as an impostor and has to fight his way through the gang. After he safely delivers Cynthia to Baldwin, his valet, he returns to clean up and capture the remaining members. Cynthia eventually learned her boss, Perry Chase, and the Press Guardian were one and the same.

In later issues, she becomes his secretary and girlfriend.


Cynthia is a feisty fighter and looks good in a red dress. She's an expert marksman with a pistol and isn't afraid to get involved.
