Comments: The Woman in Red, along with a number of other Better characters, recently reappeared as one of the heroes of Terra Obscura in Alan Moore's Tom Strong stories. In this incarnation she had gained powers similar to those of the DC Hero Green Lantern (except the solid light she used was red, naturally). Thanks to Mike Murphy for informing me of this.
