Patriotic characters are plentiful among the pages of Golden Age comics, but few are as lovely as the comely lass known as Liberty Belle. With her blond tresses a la Veronica Lake, and her femme fatale eyes and trim figure, she was almost more of a pin-up than a patriot. According to Wikipedia:
.
"The first Liberty Belle is Libby Lawrence-Chambers. Her powers of enhanced speed, strength, and stamina are linked to the ringing of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Early in her mystery-woman career she has an assistant in that city who would, when signaled, ring the bell for her. In her later years, after decades of super-strength and retarded aging, many begin to theorize about the nature of her powers - some believed the sonic vibrations of the bell triggers a meta-human gene, some believe that it is mystical, that Libby is connected to the power of the Spirit of America, like the hero Uncle Sam."

Boy Commandos #1
Winter 1942
Liberty Belle's 1st
Appearance

"Most of Liberty Belle's heroic exploits take place during the Second World War, and she is one of the founding members (and later chairwoman) of the All-Star Squadron. In her public identity, she is the famous radio columnist Libby Lawrence, and is therefore well-known both in and out of costume. During the war she marries speedster Johnny Quick. After the War they have a daughter, Jesse, who shared both their powers and took the codename Jesse Quick. Libby Lawrence is a descendant of Bess Lynn, alias Miss Liberty."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the comic above featuring one of Liberty Belle's early appearances.. However, I have also included parts to allow you to build her redesigned costume from later issues.

Happy Modeling!!
