In an era that had more than its share of badass female characters, Señorita Rio may well have ruled the roost. As an undercover agent for America, Rio didn’t wear a costume or possess any powers, but was able to topple governments with her near limitless courage, guts, intelligence and – dare I say it? – sense of style.
From Fight Comics #70 (Fiction House, September 1950), here’s a short tale of how Señorita Rio set a would-be dictator straight. The story and art are by the sadly anonymous denizens of the Iger Studio.
