Fantomah, Daughter of the Pharaohs in "The Spotted Men" (Fiction House; 1942)

Although she began her golden age career as a super-powered, frighteningly-visaged "Mystery Woman of the Jungle", Fantomah later changed her appellation to "Daughter of the Pharaohs." It is in this role that she stars today in an untitled tale that I've dubbed "The Spotted Men" from Jungle Comics #29 (May 1942); originally published by Fiction House, written by W.B. Hovious and illustrated by George Appel. This neat story features mummies, the aforementioned spotted men, plus a vengeful priestess; which adds up to a cool Halloween-style jungle adventure.

Along with changing her appellation, she also changed her HAIR COLOR, from blande to brunette/redhead (Accoring to story).
