Sylvia Manners was a society lady sent to live in an ancient castle with her aunt in the wake of the London bombings. She acted demure and sickly in public, but when the Nazi agents threatened her homeland, she slipped into the castle's secret underground hangar and flew her plane against them as Black Angel. Later on, she met Colonel Prince, the RAF air ace known as "Black Prince." The good colonial was infatuated with Black Angel, and Silvia was happy to return his affections (at least while she was in costume).  Black Angel battled such enemies as Baroness Blood and the Son of Rasputin.
