It’s another typical day for Patsy Walker, typical at least until she became a super-heroine and all sorts of nasty things occurred.

From Nellie The Nurse #14 (Timely, August 1948), here’s “Pop Rates His Skates.” The story and art are not credited.

Steve Englehart, the guy who put Patsy into the Hellcat outfit waaaay back in the 1970s, once opined that a good deal of the character’s teen shenanigans are in continuity. If so, Hedy definitely remains Patsy’s top antagonist throughout the decades. The woman’s even more devious that Daimon Hellstrom!
