Kitty Kelly was an air hostess who wanted desperately to become a pilot. During the course of her appearances, she ran into Nazi spies, saboteurs and general criminal types but, because she was a bit of an airhead, she won through luck as much as she did through effort.

The feature was later renamed Kitty Kelly: Yankee Girl where she switched from black hair to blonde but remained an air hostess. She then abandoned this name, changed professions to become a social worker, went back to black hair, and gained a costume emblazoned with her initials "KK" as she lacked a super-hero identity.

Powers and Abilities

Under times of extreme stress, Kitty Kelly would gain super-strength and self-propelled flight.
