Golden Age Origin

Girlfriend and sidekick of Minimidget, Ritty was permanently reduced to 6" tall by a mad scientist's shrinking ray, though she retains some of her original mass/strength. The duo is freed when the scientist blows up his lab when cornered by the FBI. Minimidget and Ritty make the best of their bad situation and become superheroes. They have no powers, but they make use of tiny sports cars and miniature airplanes.

Unnamed in her first appearance, the tiny girl is referred to as Ritty when the strip began its transition from Devil Doll-inspired horror story to superhero feature in Amazing-Man Comics #6. Originally wearing doll clothes, Ritty soon dons a costume with a yellow cape.
