the Golden Age girl wonder!

batfatty presents Roberta the Girl Wonder, from Star-Spangled Comics #103 (1949-ish, I think).

He's promising scans before too long. I'd never heard of Roberta before, and thought she might be of interest to y'all. Her costume is modeled on Dick's, with some changes suggestive of the costumes later worn by Supergirl and Stephanie Brown: short green short-sleeved dress with yellow-on-black Robin (or Roberta, I guess) insignia and red sleeves, red boots, red gloves, yellow cape. The insigna may or may not be heart-shaped.
