Origin

In the vast cold reaches of the far north lives Amazona: the Mighty Woman of unsurpassing strength and unmatched beauty. She and her people are the last survivors of a super race that perished during the period of the last ice age. When she meets a handsome explorer named Blake Manners who accidentally stumbled upon their citadel after surviving an ill-fated expedition, she becomes infatuated with him and follows him back to America.

Amazona frees Blake's ship from the ice.

In America, Amazona and Blake go to a party, but it is crashed by gangsters. Amazona manages to stop the criminals and avoid being caught up in a fiery explosion.

While she made only one appearance, Blake was supposedly able to investigate a murder case in the next issue with Amazona's help.
