Comic Cards Project: Day 40 • Element Girl

adminArt, ComicsLeave a Comment

Urania Blackwell was a US secret agent who purposefully exposed herself to the same radioactive meteorite that turned Rex Mason into Metamorpho. Like him, she gained the ability to totally control the elements in her body, and likewise turned into a monstrous-looking freak in the process.

No one in her right mind would “volunteer to change herself into a walking chemistry set” (as Rex put it), and like her namesake element, Urania was a little unstable. When she decided she and Metamorpho were destined to be lovers, it caused more than a little friction between Mason and his fiancé, Sapphire Stagg.

So who won in the catfight for the love of Metamorpho? His comic was cancelled after issue #17 without resolving the matter, so your guess is as good as mine.
