Manic Monday Bonus--The Worst Hero name Ever (Distaff Edition)

There's terrible super-hero names...and then there's god-awful superhero names:

Comandette?? Really? Commandette??

Well, there's actually kinda sorta a reason for the name:

Too bad we never saw Arnold Schwarzenegger in Comandette. That would have been a movie!!

And, as a former stuntwoman and female commando, Betty has finally found a use for those high heels that Golden Age female heroes wore all the time:

That's right, Commandette--smack him with your shoe...

From Star Studded Comics...hmmm, there was no number, and there was only issue, so let's just arbitrarily call this Star-Studded Comics #1 (1945)

Her alter-ego is the actress "Betty Babble?" And she co-starred with "Ronald?" Is this some kind of horrible Golden Age in-joke about Betty Grable and Ronald Reagan?

I'm not sure if that makes it better or worse.
