Why do strong men fear Wolf Gal?

The reason was that Wolf Gal, who had been raised by a pack of timber wolves (dubbed her "Dogpatch"), was always on the lookout for a man...

So she could bring him back to her wolves and feed him to them.

  • Wolf Gal was possibly, and even probably, a cannibal — although the point was never stressed since she considered herself an animal, as did the rest of her "Dogpatch."
  • Wolf Gal was briefly merchandised with her own doll, handpuppet, and even a latex Hallowe'en mask.
  • Although her look was fairly consistent, the coloring changed from appearance to appearance. At times, she was blonde, a redhead, or white haired.
