Now you ladies know I’m all about chicks making ish happen. In a male dominated society, we have a lot more obstacles to overcome to reach success. Some women do it using their ASSets while others do it the legit way. Either way it’s a hustle with a major payoff in the end (hopefully). June Tarpé Mills made her mark on the world. No boobs necessary.
June was born in 1915, in the midst of the first World War. Men were leaving to defend the country, so women were being appointed to roles of power. Although the positions were temporary, women’s time to shine was well overdue. June seized the moment and carried the message of girl power with her throughout life.
Miss Fury, the most popular of Mills’ characters, came to life in 1941. Fury laid the groundwork for future female superheroes. The patent leather warrior spawned the likes of similar characters such as Catwoman and Batgirl. Believe it or not, Miss Fury was the first female superhero drawn by a woman. Cool huh? The comic proved to be so cool and praiseworthy that Marvel published and re-released the original Miss Fury comics in the 1970s.
