Public Domain Appearances

  • Terrific Comics #2-6
  • Cat-Man Comics #27-32


  • DC Comics had a character with the same name that debuted in Action Comics #1, appearing until the 14th issue. Most sites claim they are one and the same but, although extremely similar (the aforementioned same name, as well as both being non-powered reporters), they are different (yet, again: extremely similar) characters.
    • Most sites also claim this character's first appearance was published by Holyoke however, it was published by Helnit.
  • Interesting to note (hence, being here in the "Notes" section...): Scoop has always been regarded as the main character yet (more often than not)... Molly was first-billed!
