Comments: The above entry only really covers the Golden Age Patsy Walker. Patsy turned up again in the 1970s, where it was revealed that the original version of Patsy was an idealised vision of her licensed to a comic book company by her overbearing mother. Patsy then went on to work with the Avengers, borrow The Cat's old costume (since she had become Tigra and no longer needed it) and become Hellcat, have her ex-boyfriend / husband Buzz become a supervillain called Mad Dog, have her join the Defenders and marry Daimon Hellstrom, the Son of Satan, and generally be an intermittent but pretty active part of the mainstream Marvel universe. And if she can do it, then one day, perhaps we'll see the return of Nellie the Nurse too!
The original Patsy meanwhile had enjoyed a reasonable amount of success in comic terms - her own title had been published for twenty years, starting in 1945, and she'd even had a couple of spin-offs.
