Golden Age Origin

Valkyrie was a female pilot in the German Luftwaffe who flew an advanced model of the Messerschmidt plane. She had taken to the skies to inspire German woman to become pilots and to turn the tide of the war in Germany's favor. On her first mission, she shot down three Allied pilots though the Allies had no idea that she was a woman.

Eventually, She was confronted at a secret air base by the American costumed hero Blackout (2) (or Firebird in Talespin Comics #1). Valkyrie pulled her gun on the hero, but Blackout/Firebird was quicker on the draw and shoots his opponent down in self-defense.


  • The story in Talespin Comics #1 was re-printed and re-colored from a Blackout (2) story in Cat-Man Comics #24.
  • Valkyrie should not be confused with the Airboy villain of the same name.
