 Linda Darnell

Linda Turner was a Hollywood starlet and former stunt-woman in the early 1940's when she battled her director who she suspected of being a Nazi spy. Donning the outfit of a black cat to take advantage of her opponent's superstitions, she defeated his spy ring and enjoyed herself doing it so much she decided to continue her alternate career as a costumed super heroine - the Black Cat. The mental agility she'd learned from her father, a private detective, came in handy with her skills at judo, lariat handling, and motorcycle stunt-riding, were all used in her battles against crime.

The Black Cat was one of the earliest female costumed crime-fighters in the comics, debuting in 1941 in POCKET COMICS. She later appeared in SPEED COMICS and her own BLACK CAT COMICS. She faded out of comics in the late forties, except for occasional appearances in later years.
