Thelma Gordon is the reporter girlfriend and non-costumed sidekick of, first, John Dickering, the Comet, and then his brother, Bob Dickering, the Hangman. She also had a brother of her own, Johnny (although she never appeared in his one and only appearance - Pep Comics #31).

Golden Age Appearances

  • Black Hood Comics #9-10
  • Hangman Comics #3-5, 7-8

  • Only the golden age MLJ Thelma Gordon is public domain, all subsequent versions created by Archie and DC comics are NOT.
  • Based on a review of First copyright renewals for periodicals, "Pep Comics: issues renewed from March 1949 (v. 1 no. 72); see 1977 Jan-Jun", which would indicate that #17-47 were not copyright renewed.
