Ms. Victory

n 1942, 27 year-old Joan Wayne was a research assistant on the governmental top secret Lifeform Supra-Normal Development project, a project aimed at creating a super soldier for the U. S. Government in its fight against the fascist threat from abroad. Initial tests with the unstable V-45, as it was called, failed. The experiments had been done on crack covert agent Dan Barton, the boyfriend of the then-future Blue Bulleteer, socialite Laura Wright. Dan Barton metamorphosed into the super threat the Black Commando, endangering the project's funding. To save the funding and to be able to offer positive results, Joan surreptitiously redesigned the V-45, renaming it V-47 and tailoring it to her specific body chemistry and took the serum herself becoming the superpowerful Miss Victory.


nder the effects of the [ serum / drug / formula / vitamin ] Joan can lift several hundred tons, has total recall and hyper fast reaction time. Her senses are all enhanced to peak ability, especially her vision, which far exceeds that. Nearly invulnerable, when she does get injured she heals quickly because of her incredible health. She can hold her breath for over four hours and can fly at well over 200 mph.


oan had the chance to rescue Eleanor Roosevelt from assassins. The First Lady then helped Joan obtain official sanction to form an all-woman team of paranormal operatives, code-named Femforce.


n the 1980's Joan was force-fed an overdose of the V-45 compound by the Black Commando. The drug caused Joan to undergo a startling transformation. Her aged body attained permanent superstrength and revitalized youth. But her mind twisted into the ruthless, mercenary and narcissistic Rad — a vicious and deadly creature with all the powers of Ms. Victory , and none of the compassion, mercy and sense of duty that Joan Wayne once possessed.


n 1992, it took the combined might of the Femforce to hunt Rad down and expunge the V-45 from her system by, in effect, tiring her out, freeing Joan from her psychological prison. She returned to her duties as leader of the Femforce.
