Friday Night Fights - Hail To The Chief

While I'm tucked away in a cold corner of Britain, I'm not unaware of what's happening on the other side of the Atlantic and with a new President settling in this week, I figured I'd go patriotic.

Come back with me to the wild days of 1941 as America becomes involved in the Second World War and Latin salsa bands command radio controlled bomber planes with the sound of Wagner's Ride of The Valkyrie.
Told you they did. But never fear - America has a new heroine to hand:
Miss America in her first outing, destroying the bombers with some sort of non-tactile telekinesis, and the salsa band leader isn't happy.
But Miss America doesn't need fancy powers - a quick Judo flimp and WHOMP! the Latin leader's on his behind.

Who will lead the band now? Only Spacebooger knows!

This patriotic punch-up first appeared in Secret Origins #26, cover dated May 1988, written by Roy and Dann Thomas with art by Grant Miehm.
