Heroines and Villainesses: H

This is a very cursory list of good girls and bad girls, some that fall in between, and others who got immortalized in plastic for whatever reason. The photos I've included are from figures in my personal collection; the photos are mine. When I can, the list will be expanded; this is just the basic first go of the Hs.

Wendy,
Re: Hellcat (Marvel Comics)
• Created by:

Hellcat was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist George Perez. Both her civilian ID and her costume have long histories. Patsy
Walker had appeared in comic books by Marvel's predecessor, debuting in Nov 1944. The costume was based on one worn by Greer Grant Nelson in her short-lived series, The Cat (Nov 1972 - June 1973).
Hope this helps!
