See this woman of fury on the side of a World War II bomber plane?

She’s meant to be the face from the comic book character, Miss Fury – the first printed female superheroine. June Mills, the artist and series writer, hid her gender from fans under the name, Tarpe Mills.

While the copy cat image is a poor substitute for Mills’ powerful and glamorous character, the popular character helped change social perceptions about women. This week, WS finishes our series on comedic women, illustrating how the fight for inclusion and equality goes on.
