Public Domain Hero Week
- I re-imagine heroes and villains from the Public Domain.
(For commentary on this week's drawings - [link]
Once a happy member of a collage trio of friends, Ann decided to marry her sweet heart Bart - their friend Trent (who had also loved Ann) showed his support by paying for the happy couple's honeymoon.
However, that night ended in tragedy as a group of thugs assaulted them and brutally murdered Bart as Ann watched. "The Voice has ordered your death!" was all they said before they attacked.
Overwhelmed by sorrow and rage, Ann swore to hunt down and kill the Voice. Using skills her father had taught her, as well as some of his gear from his time on the police force - Ann began hunting criminals. Brutally and violently, she gunned down any criminal she could find... Always asking, "Where is the Voice?!"
Here brutal methods would attract the attention of not only the crime lords of the city, but of the Black Terror.
Red Ann (created by Jerry Robinson and Mort Meskin) first appeared in 1948's Black Terror #24
