Golden Age Origin

When Richard Stanton's daughter was kidnapped, the shock gave his wife a heart attack and he quit the theater to find his daughter. So he disguises himself as a harmless old woman later to be known as Madame Fatal. Eight years later, he finds the gangster who kidnapped his daughter, John Carver. Carver kidnapped Stanton's daughter out of revenge because Stanton married Carver's first love. Stanton brings the fiend to justice, but fails to find his daughter. So, he decides to continue to use his disguise and fight criminals such as the Jester as Madame Fatal. He was assisted by his Parrot, Hamlet who would recite Shakespeare. He later formed the "Sure Fire Detective Agency" with Tubby White and Scrappy Nelson. Madame Fatal had no powers but wielded a cane as a weapon and was a skilled actor and master of disguise. His foes included Tiger Woman, Jester (Villain), and the Black Witch.
