Real Name

First Appearance

Exciting Comics #39 (June 1945)

Original Publisher

Nedor

Created by

Al Camy

Origin

Jane Howell was on a plane piloted by Major Christopher "Kit" Walker, when it crashed into a lake in the jungles of Nairobi. The native, Baldayo, was killed in the crash, but gave Jane and Chris a magical powder that allowed them to walk away from the crash unharmed. They soon found a kingdom called Arohiti under the lake. The Arohitians believed her to be their lost 2,000-year-old princess, Kara. Jane was convinced to assume the identity of Kara, and swore to protect the peaceful kingdom against the evil Targala, who wished Kara for his bride. Walker became the captain of her guard.

Powers and Abilities

Jane Howell was a nurse in the U.S. Army. With the special power from Baldayo, Jane is now immortal and impervious to injury. She can be a brutal fighter when called to defend herself. She usually carries a dagger, and many have felt the thrust of its blade.

Notes

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
