Comments: Created by Roy Thomas. It was originally planned for Jacqueline to become the new Union Jack (spelled Union Jaq, or Union Jackie) when her father was crippled. However Roy Thomas and artist Frank Springer found that the Union Jack costume just didn't look right on a female torso. Instead they created Spitfire, named after the British war plane.
