(Red Seal Comics #17) No longer using the superheroic nickname, Kitty nonetheless adopted a superhero-style costume.

Comments: Kitty originally appeared as a non-costumed, non-secret identity heroine in 1941. When she reappeared in 1945, now in a Four Star Publications title, she had gained a codename, Yankee Girl, the same as another of Chesler's characters, but was otherwise the same non-superhero adventurer. Then a year later, she had ditched the codename, but gained a costume.
