Raised in a small kingdom in a remote part of Samarkand, the girl known as the Princess of the Moon was taught that she came from a long line of women who had been unbeatable in battle. Unfortunately, she wasn't told this until after she had sworn to herself that she would never marry a man unless he was a superior warrior to her.

Taking her family heirloom, a moonstone said to make the wearer invincible, she left her home and traveled to America in search of Prince Mengu, a suitor she had liked but easily defeated. Finding him working as a teacher under an assumed name, she created her own false identity, Clare Lane, and found work at the same school. She then convinced Prince Mengu to join her in fighting crime in their real identities.

Later, she was joined by a female sidekick called Star. Moon Girl fought enemies such as Satana, Mabelene, Invaders from Venus, Lurani, and Undina.
